Photography - Come on, get snappy
Photographs of local architecture are being sought for PhotoArch, a competition open to Scottish schools.
The Scottish Civic Trust competition has been open to primary schools since 2006, but this year it is also seeking entries from secondaries. The first 15 secondaries to register interest before the November 12 deadline for entries are eligible.
If schools are unsure about what to photograph in their area, organisers advise using the free online tool Pastmap and its comprehensive information on listed buildings, ancient monuments and other heritage sites across Scotland.
Winning pictures will be put forward as Scotland's contribution to the International Heritage Photographic Experience, which oversees similar projects throughout the world.
Since the IHPE started in 1996, more than 220,000 young people from 58 countries have taken over 1,500,000 photographs.
The PhotoArch website also includes information on how the competition can tie in with Curriculum for Excellence.
