There are many picture postcard spots in and around the seaside town of Aberystwyth, so it's hardly surprising that some of the local folk are setting up a new photography festival to celebrate the town and its photographers.

FfotoAber will be the first festival of its kind for the town, and will celebrate the art of photography through a series of exhibitions and events in Aberystwyth.

It is being organised by local residents not only for the residents and the local area, but also for visitors from all parts of Wales and beyond.

FfotoAber will start in the October half term and will culminate in the already established Lens Festival at the National Library of Wales on 18 and 19 November.

The festival will be an opportunity to see photography in both familiar and unfamiliar locations in the town; in galleries, cafés and as large scale outdoor projections on the street.

Visitors will be able to take part in workshops with expert photographers and there are also plans for a photomarathon, which is likely to take place on Saturday 22 October.

If you're interested in taking part in the festival you can find out more on the website www.ffotoaber.com, plus keep up to date with the latest plans on Facebook and Twitter.
