Applications are open for artists to take part in a popular sculpture trail which is set return this August.
The Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail annually attracts thousands of visitors to see the work of artists from around the country.
Organised by Waveney & Blyth Arts, the event, which has taken place at the River Waveney Study Centre near Bungay for the past three years, will now take place at The Raveningham Centre, near Loddon.
It is part of 'Celebrate the Waveney & Blyth 2017', an annual programme of events celebrating the unique character of the two valleys situated in north Suffolk and south Norfolk.
Nicky Stainton from Waveney & Blyth Arts said: 'The site is very different to previous years and includes an orchard, pond, shrubberies and lawn areas.
You may also want to watch:
'There are a lot of attractions including the Ravenous Cafe, East India Trading Company's wonderful rugs, Cannell Antiques, Helen Howes Textile Artist and other units. Visitors will discover a real treasure trove.'
In 2016 more than 3,250 visitors visited the trail to see the work of 45 artists, generating around £7,000 worth of sales. Both established and up-and-coming artists are encouraged to enter the 2017 trail.

Curator Sarah Cannell said: 'We have a lot more work to get the site ready for the public, in a similar way to the first year at the Earsham site, but it's already started to feel magical as the snowdrops and aconites are starting to flower in the orchard.
'My vision is to continue to encourage public interaction with contemporary art in a rural setting and we would like to invite applications from artists and sculptors keen to respond to this beautiful site.'
All artwork on the trail will be available for sale and there will be an opportunity to sell cards, prints and books related to the artwork.
This year there will be two awards for participating artists, The Visitor's Choice award and The Curator's Choice award.
