A LOCAL property firm is challenging youngsters to capture their community through an innovative photography competition.

Indigo Square, situated on Largs Main Street, is working with Largs Academy pupils to find the perfect photograph they believe sums up the town.

The contest will see high school pupils from Largs and Ardrossan compete to win the top prize and have their photographs displayed in the Indigo Square Glasgow and Largs offices throughout December.

Owner Brian Gilmour is hoping it will inspire the pupils to be more mindful of their local surroundings and all the town has to offer.

He said: "As a residential letting and property factoring firm, we are custodians of the homes that make up the local community.

"So, we are looking at ways to reflect this, whilst also engaging with younger people and the way that they perceive their community.

"Young people are the future of local communities and if we help them to engage with the environment around them and appreciate the local environment then that can only help all of us in North Ayrshire."

The competition will be split into sections, with the first and third years competing against each other and the fourth to sixth years in a separate category.

To enter, pupils are asked to take a photograph that they believe captures the community and how they perceive the area.

Brian added: "Our local towns mean a lot to all of us, but what sums up that town will be different for every person.

"So, whether it's the iconic Nardini's or simply waves crashing against the sure, whatever someone in this part of North Ayrshire believes encapsulates the ethos of the area, that is the image we are asking them to try and get."

Pupils will be able to enter through the school who will collate the photographs and submit them to Indigo Square for judging.
