The Daily Echo and Castle Cameras are looking for your best picture from the 2016 Bournemouth Air Festival.

Our annual contest invites photographers of all ages to get out their cameras and submit their pictures from the four-day extravaganza, which runs from Thursday, August 18, to Sunday, August 21.

There are two categories - adult and junior, for ages 16 and under.

This year the judges are looking for an image of aviation from the adults, while juniors will need to capture the spirit of the Air Festival.
