The Farmers Weekly‘s Photography Competition 2012 is open for entries.

Offering £1,000 of cash prizes and with eight categories covering the whole range of farming and countryside topics, entering is a great chance to showcase your work.

Any amateur photographers can enter, so we look forward to seeing your pictures, whether you like focusing on huge pieces of kit, tiny critters, quirky moments or stunning scenes.

We’re offering a cash prize of £100 for each of the eight category winners and those eight will then go head-to-head for the overall “winner of winners” prize, which is an additional £200.

We’ll also be including a selection of our favourite shots in the bumper Christmas issue of Farmers Weekly magazine, so you could even see your work published in print.

Entering this high-profile Waitrose-sponsored competition is quick and easy – you just need to upload your best pictures to the entry gallery on FWi.

The closing date is 2 November 2012.
