Quirky Cromer calendar by amateur photographers launched by Jarrold

A gallery of quirky photographs of Cromer by keen amateurs is set to hang on walls around the world - after their imaginative images were put into a calendar.

They were, selected from hundreds of entries, to appear in the 2013 Cromer calendar by Jarrold.

And they have been to the town to pick up their copies at a gathering hosted at the Virginia Court Hotel.

Jarrold co-manager at Cromer Mark Warner, who organised the calendar, said photographers had risen to the challenge to find some off-beat pictures of the resort with more than 360 entries received over the course of a year.

Five judges - including News photographer Antony Kelly - took three hours to pick the final 12.
