Keen photographers are being encouraged to enter a competition celebrating the county's architecture.
The sixth biennial Festival of Architecture in Norwich and Norfolk, organised by the Norfolk Association of Architects (NAA), is calling for people to enter its Architectural Photography contest.
The theme for 2019 is reuse, recycle and reinvent, which the organisers say combines environmental sustainability together with the way buildings are adapted and reused.
The winner will receive an afternoon tea for four, combined with a building tour, offered by the Maids Head Hotel in Norwich.
Jerene Irwin, president of the NAA said: "Based on this year's theme of reuse, recycle, reinvent, we will be focusing on how Norwich and Norfolk have reinvented themselves over the years and we are keen to see how the county's photographers respond to this theme.
"The focus can be anything but as a starting point could be contemporary buildings that have enhanced their surrounding, restored or beautiful examples of historic buildings, structures or details on buildings that add to their beauty. The more creative the better."
The contest is for amateur photographers and will have two categories, open to all and under 16s.
- 1 'I couldn't believe it' - West Norfolk villages hit by flash flooding
