Edinburgh City Council is marking Earth Hour with a photo competition. Individuals, communities and businesses are being encouraged to share their pictures of what they are doing across Edinburgh to reduce the effects of climate change.

Photos can be uploaded to the Council’s Earth Hour flickr website and will see the entrants entered into a prize draw, where they can win one of three £50 Scotmid vouchers.

Cllr Jenny Dawe, Leader of Edinburgh Council said: “I am delighted that Edinburgh is marking WWF's Earth Hour. This year promises to be better than ever and will send out a bold visual message that we all must take action to tackle climate change. The Council takes tackling climate change very seriously, recognising that small actions make big differences. I would encourage everyone to play their part and turn off lights to mark this global event.”

The competition runs from until Friday 13 April 2012.
