THIS year’s photography event at Carre Gallery in Sleaford is three exhibitions in one.

The Junior Sports Programme Photographic Competition consists of photographs selected from entries for the 2012 Junior Sports Programme Photographic Competition.

Judging takes place at the end of the exhibition with awards for the best entry and for The People’s Choice selected by visitors.

People can choose their favourite using a voting slip provided and place it in the voting box.

The Hodgson Elkington Junior Sports Programme is a registered charity supporting and promoting Junior Sports Activities in Lincolnshire and east Nottinghamshire. As well as the competition there will be a collection of classic motor sport photographs taken by the teenage Michael Aspinall when accompanying his father to motor racing circuits.

A spokesman for the gallery said: “Michael’s enthusiasm for motor sport continued into adult life with participation in classic saloon and sports car racing. The photographs taken in his youth were stored in a cupboard for over 40 years and rediscovered only recently.

“They are now being restored for exhibition and sale. These are the very first prints to be released.

Now retired, Michael is an active supporter of the Junior Sports Programme and East Midlands representative of English Lacrosse.”

Proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to the Junior Sports Programme.

The third exhibition is Endangered Species By Barry Bland.

Lincolnshire-born Barry Bland has established an international reputation as an endangered species photographer. He has been a previous exhibitor at Carre Gallery.

This year’s exhibition is of some of his most popular work which was taken in support of fund-raising for The Rare Species Fund and other organisations.

Proceeds from the print sales will be donated to the junior sports programme.

The exhibition runs from 10am-4pm on October 27.
