Our judging panel, including Cheshire Life editor Louise Taylor, picture editor John Cocks and David Pilkington from competition sponsors Wilkinsons Cameras, will soon begin the difficult task of selecting a shortlist.

The superb pictures in this feature are just some of the shots they will consider and they could win the photographers some brilliant prizes.

As ever Wilkinson’s Cameras have selected some impressive equipment to give away to whoever takes the three pictures chosen by our panel of judges.

The winner will receive a Nikon D3200 & AF-S 18-55 VR worth £445, second prize is a Nikon 1 J2 & 10-30mm White worth £400 and our third place photographer will win a Nikon Coolpix S9300 Red worth £200 (all prices correct as of January).

The 12 shortlisted photographs will also be considered for inclusion in the 2014 Cheshire Life calendar.
