Day one of voting is now open for the Birnbeck Calendar Competition.


Readers submitted their very best photos to the Birnbeck Calendar Competition but now it is down to you to choose which ones will win.

For the past two years we have worked with the Birnbeck Regeneration Trust (BRT), a group which is lobbying to restore the town’s crumbling Birnbeck Pier, to run a competition which invited photographers to send in their best photos of Weston at its best.

This year the revived competition had a new theme – Somerset At Its Finest – where photos from across Somerset were welcomed.

The Mercury received more than 150 entries into this year’s competition with a wide range of shots of sunsets, countryside scenes and bustling town centres.

But which is your favourite? Over the next week we will be asking you to choose the competition winners in four rounds.

You can vote for as many photos as you like using our poll and a new round will go up at 9am each morning between today (Monday) and Thursday.

You will have until next Monday to cast your votes and the winners will be announced in the Mercury on September 28.

The three photos with the most votes in each round at the end of the week will be crowned the winners and will appear in the calendar, which will go on sale later this year.
