For the Paint the Town competition, we are inviting readers to draw or paint an image that sums up the town in a positive way. There will be two categories, for under-18s and adults, excluding professional artists and photographs. The painting, drawing or sketch can be in any medium but no bigger than A3 (30x42cm or 11.6inx16.5in) and no smaller than A4 (21x29cm or 8.27x11.69in).

More details about how to send us your Scarborough Paint the Town entry in next week’s issue – and the contributions will go on public display.

Ed Asquith, editor, said: “Paint the Town is a good opportunity to be positive about what Scarborough offers and why we live and work here.

“Artistic contributions can provide thought-provoking perspectives on our area and environment, on its people and on whatever we take for granted.

“We hope that as many people as possible join in – we are not necessarily looking for high-end art but anything that captures in some way an aspect of Scarborough. Give it a go and let’s create an amazing range of Scarborough art.”

The deadline for entries is Friday July 5.
