Are you a budding landscape or wildlife photographer? Do you have an eye for the unusual? Are you proud of your area?

If so, then we want your pictures of the Buchan area to feature in our special 2016 calendar.

The Buchanie is hoping to publish a special 2016 calendar featuring pictures of the very best the Buchan area has to offer.

Amateur photographers of all abilities are invited to submit their photographs for consideration and the best 12 will be selected to feature in our calendar.

Perhaps you enjoy photographing the likes of the Ugie River, the lighthouse at Rattray, the puffins at Bullers o’Buchan or the waves crashing over the breakwater at Peterhead Bay?

If so then why not send us your best photograph and enter it into our competition.

Once we have all the entries we will publish them in the paper and, with the help of our readers, and a special guest judge, pick the 13 best entries (one cover shot and one for each month) to feature in our calendar.

The Discovering Buchan 2016 calendar will be a high-quality glossy, wiro-bound product featuring stunning landscape photos of Buchan reproduced at A4 size.

The calendar will also come with an envelope making it easier for Buchan folk to send copies to friends and family.

A supplement will be produced and printed in the Buchanie and will feature the top entries which our readers will be asked to vote on via and entry coupon and via text messaging.

The winning entries will also feature in our ‘pic of the week’ slot in our new magazine section.

To enter the competition, simply email across your image (which must be a high-quality landscape picture and left in its original size) with details of where and when you took the shot along with your name, address and a daytime telephone number.

Entries should be sent to news@buchanobserver.com with the subject heading Calendar picture to arrive with us no later than 12 noon on Friday, June 12.

So get snapping out and about in the Buchan area and send in your photogaphs.

Who knows, you may well be one of the winning 12 photographers.

Good luck!
