There will be a selection of large photo prints as well as albums of entries from each year since the competition began.

Each year the contest attracts hundreds of entries from keen photographers and park lovers of all ages and abilities.

Mote Park manager Alan Frith said: "This is a wonderful competition which really engages people with the park.

"It’s a beautiful site with such diverse landscapes and wildlife, and it changes with each season. It’s a real treat to see all the entries come in each year."

The contest is open for entries this year from Friday, March 1 until Saturday, August 31; they must be taken within the park and categories include landscapes, seasons and wildlife. Find out more here.

Cllr Paul Harper from Maidstone council added: "This exhibition will provide a great showcase not only for the photographs but also for the park itself, which is undoubtedly the star of the show."
