Today the Shropshire Star is joining forces with Telford Shopping Centre, inviting readers to select their favourite 12 images for a new 2013 calendar.
More than 400 pictures were submitted during July and August when the centre invited their customers to enter its photography competition.
The prize was a chance to have work featured on a 2013 calendar which will be raising funds for the Telford Street Pastors charity.
The charity, launched last year, offers care and support to young people, helping them to feel safer when they are out and about at night.
Helped by the expert eye of Shropshire Star photographer Andrew Cunningham, the centre whittled down the entries to their favourite 24.
Now, it’s up to Shropshire Star readers to go one step further, and choose the final 12.Fill out my online form.
The poll will be open for the whole of this week, and the calendar – made up of the 12 images which received the highest number of votes – will be on sale at Telford Shopping Centre’s customer service desks next month.
Tracy Hadley, marketing and events manager at the shopping centre, said: “The standard of photographs was extremely high and demonstrated the huge amount of talent there is in Telford. The calendar is a fantastic way of celebrating this talent and supporting a great cause.
This is our first ever charity calendar and we’re really excited to find out which 12 photos readers will vote for.
“The Telford Street Pastors carry out terrific work in the local community and we hope this calendar will go some way in supporting them to carry on their good deeds.”
Many of the images have been taken by local people, including Paul Lewis from Telford who captured watery fun at Stirchley, Les Bekesi who got two of his pictures into the final 24, and wildlife images from Becky Baker of Telford, and Katherine Rollinson from Sheriffhales.
Charlotte Ball from Bridgnorth made it onto the shortlist with an image of her cousin playing football with the dog, and Andy Hall from Newport is another double entrant, thanks to fun and games on the beach featuring his father and son.
Several of the other entries have come from Wolverhampton, with the furthest afield submitted by a shopper who visits Telford from her home in Derby.
