A special photographic competition which celebrates Nottinghamshire and all it has to offer has been launched to help mark a Jubilee year of landmark events in the county – including the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, County Day and the Tour of Britain.

‘Nottinghamshire in 2022’ is being led by Nottinghamshire County Council and Lord-Lieutenant Sir John Peace, who are encouraging residents to get out their cameras to showcase why our county is a great place to live, work and visit.
