IT is almost time for the Hartlepool Mail to choose five more winners for our tall ships photograph competition.

Dozens of you submitted pictures to go on show as part of an exhibition commemorating the first anniversary of the Hartlepool leg of The Tall Ships Races, at the Hartlepool Art Gallery, in Church Square.

Five have already been on show in the The Tall Ships Races... One Year On display and they were Kath Gordon, Kevin McCammon, David Jackson, Brett Swain and Robert Donaldson.

We will choose five more shortly. Watch out for details on this winners in the Mail later this week.

In the meantime, here are more of your shots which are some of the 850 you submitted as entries in our competition.

The exhibitions runs until Saturday, August 27, and reflects last year’s event when 970,000 visitors came to Hartlepool.

We saw 59 tall ships in town as well as 3,000 international crew members.

The races generated £29.6m of income for the local area.

The art gallery is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays between 10am-5pm.

It is closed on Sundays, Mondays and bank holidays.
