Put yourself in frame

Budding artists and photographers are being called upon to get their ‘Pentland Inspirations’ entries in before the deadline this Friday.

The fifth biennial Pentland Inspirations Art and Photographic Competition opened in June and a number of submissions have been received so far.

Competitors are asked to draw on the natural beauty of the Pentland Hills to inspire their work – following in the footsteps of generations of artists, poets and authors including Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.

Six winners will be chosen in November from the art and photography sections.

The best entries will then be showcased in a touring exhibition that will visit Edinburgh & the Lothians, South Lanarkshire and the Scottish Borders from December.

Entry forms are available for download at www.pentlandhills.org
