image captionWilliam Eason's The Park was the junior runner-up. The 11-year-old pupil from Sprowston High School said: "I chose the park because I have been going there for years to play football and walk my pet dog." CPRE Norfolk chairman James Parry said: "All of the images show an emotional rapport with the landscape, for the place they were photographing - I think that's why they are such a good standard."

image captionMr Parry added: "In an age when they are so many distractions for kids, the fact they are inspired enough by the countryside to get involved in this kind of thing is good to see. The CPRE is very keen to get more young people engaged with the countryside and this has proved a very effective way of doing that." This coastal image, called Morgana Dweller of the Sea, by Emma Jarvis was shortlisted in the senior category.

She said: "I wanted to capture a winter's atmosphere and entered it in the competition because I thought it would be quite different with its moody, gritty, dark, atmosphere."
