Since the Enjoy Cromer More team announced a competition in conjunction with the North Norfolk District Council, entries have been rolling in.

The competition is to find the best picture of one of North Norfolk’s six blue flag beaches.

And if you haven’t had time to enter yet, we’ve collated some of our favourite entries so far to give you some inspiration. email article from Enjoy Cromer More

A spokesman from the NNDC said: “We are very proud of our six Blue Flag beaches and would like you to help us celebrate them.

“Thousands of visitors and residents use the beaches in North Norfolk every year because they meet the criteria for the internationally recognised designation.”

Last year North Norfolk District Council had its most successful set of Blue Flag results when the district secured six flags, at East Runton, West Runton, Cromer, Mundesley, Sea Palling and Sheringham. We hope for the same result this year.

The spokesman continued: “We know that many of you take lots of photos on the beach, especially when the sun is out, and we would love it if you shared some of those images by emailing communications@north-norfolk.gov.uk, or by sharing on either our facebook page competition thread, or on the Enjoy Cromer More facebook group’s competition thread.

“The idea is for each photo to be of one of the six beaches which hold the Blue Flag – but beyond that the subject matter is up to you. It might be a sunset or a particularly blue sky; it might include beach huts or sandcastles. It’s for you to decide.”

The spokesman added: “So please get sharing. Please bear in mind if you are seeing a message on a share, you’ll need to go back to the original thread to post the image or we won’t necessarily see it!

The winner will receive a trophy and a large print out of their photo to keep.

The spokesman added: “We will also pick a selection of photos to display at the National Blue Flag awards ceremony run by Keep Britain Tidy, which is being hosted in Cromer on May 17 on Cromer Pier.”
