Youngsters from across the west of Scotland have just over a week to enter 'Scotland's Seas' and could be in with a chance of winning photography equipment for their school.
Entry to the 'Scotland's Seas' junior photography competition closes on Friday, November 9.
The Evening Times and organisers of the Saltire Prize are asking pupils to take photos of the the seas and waterways in and around Scotland.
The competition is open to three categories, P1-7, S1-S3 and S4-S6, and gives pupils a chance to win photography equipment for their school and a one-to-one masterclass with a photography expert.
School pupils are being encouraged to use their creativity to safely capture the power of Scotland's waters, from gushing waterfalls and flowing rivers to crashing waves or a running tap – anything that depicts the power of water in the local area.
Entries can be uploaded to www.scotland.org/power-of-the-sea to be in for the chance of winning.
The 'Scotland's Seas' competition was launched in Orkney by Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
Regional photos will be judged by a panel led by the Evening Times Picture Editor Christian Cooksey, and the winners in each age category will be entered in to the national final.
The overall winner will be selected by award-winning Scots photo-grapher David Eustace.
Budding photographers are being reminded to take care when out taking images.
Regional winners will be automatically entered into the national contest and regional winners will be announced on November 20.
The Junior Saltire Prize was created in 2011 to raise awareness among young people of the developments within the marine renewable sector.
