Amateur photographers are again being challenged to take a great picture and 'capture the spirit' of the annual New Year's Day fireworks display at Cromer Pier.

The competition, which is running for the fifth year, is open to all amateur photographers and the winner will have their winning photograph turned into the official poster for the 2019 New Year's Day firework event. It will also be used in other promotional material.

They will also win a 43 inch HD TV, courtesy of electrical retailer Hughes Plus.

Chairman of the fireworks committee Jim Bond said: 'Every year we see hundreds of fabulous photographs of the event in the press and online. We thought it would be great to continue the photography competition to inspire more people. We are looking for photographs that really capture the spirit of the event.'
