More than 30 photographic clubs from across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire have contributed a total of 449 images to the North and East Midlands Photographic Federation’s 58th annual search for the best photographers in the area, showcasing eight categories including best monochrome image, best natural history print and best colour photograph.

“This year, as ever, the quality of the work was of a very high standard,” says organiser Gary Langley.

“It was quite a daunting challenge for me and my partner. We live in a two-bedroom flat, so over the last two months space has been at a premium.

“The two things that stood out to me were the amount of images, both print and PDI, and the way the team handled the task in front of them.

“You have to see the running of the selection days to truly appreciate everyone’s efforts and teamwork makes a complicated job look easy.

“Our judges had some difficult decisions to make.”

  • Open 10am-5pm (closed Sunday). Admission free. Follow the museum on Twitter @MansfieldMuseum.
