Do you have an image which could grace calendar cover?

If you have a spectacular image which you would like to share with the isles then perhaps you should enter The Shetland Times Calendar Competition.

To be in with a shot of having your photograph grace the walls of homes and workplaces around Shetland simply send your image into the paper for consideration.

It could be a shot which captures the breathtaking scenery of the isles or a picture of some of the fascinating wildlife which visits or lives here.
