FIRST Great Western has launched a photo competition to capture the beautiful scenery of the UK.

The company is inviting amateur photographers to uncover some of the hidden gems of Swindon and the South West, or send in photographs of the places they have travelled to by train this summer.

All entries will appear in the FGW Frame Your Train gallery and be judged by a panel for a chance to win Photo Of The Week and two standard class train tickets.

To enter, take a photo of the view from the carriage window and upload it to Instagram using #FGWframeyourtrain as well as the location of the entry, eg #Swindon.

The deadline for entering the competition is Monday, August 25.
