The Country, Land and Business Association (CLA) has launched a photo competition aimed at showcasing the landscapes and people which make up the British countryside.

The CLA, which is offering a top prize of £1,000, said it particularly wants to celebrate the people who make the rural economy tick.

The monthly competition is part of its campaign, The Countryside Matters, calling for continued investment in the countryside.

Tan Parsons, editor of CLA magazine Land & Business, said: “We have some brilliant prizes on offer throughout the year and the winning entries will be showcased in Land & Business.”

Entries to the competition, open to members of the public, close on the 12th day of the month.
