Tomorrow (Thursday) is the final day in which you can enter your photographs in the Mercury’s Birnbeck Calendar Competition.

We asked budding photographers to submit photos which showed Somerset At Its Finest and we have had more than 150 submissions so far.

The competition, which is run in partnership with the Birnbeck Regeneration Trust (BRT), will see 12 winners’ photos feature in a calendar which will be sold around the town to raise money to restore the crumbling pier.

MORE: View full details of how to enter.

A panel of judges, which includes BRT trustees and Mercury reporters, will meet on Friday to pick the 72 most impressive pictures which will then be put to the public vote.

On Monday, visit to place your vote for your favourite pictures.

Voting will close at noon on September 25 and the winners will be announced in the Mercury on Thursday September 28.
