Enter the Life Through The Lens photo challenge and you could win a family holiday for four and a Samsung Galaxy phone worth £500.

The North West Year of Health and Wellbeing Partnership is calling on people across the region to get involved in the competition which aims to highlight a set of five simple actions which can improve wellbeing in everyday life.

The actions, which are also the themes for the competition, are: connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give.

Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine (pictured) has teamed up with The Year of Health and Wellbeing Partnership to promote the photo challenge which aims to encourage people to get snapping and feel great.

Mike Farrar, national NHS champion for sport and physical activity and CEO of NHS Confederation, who initiated the campaign, said: "In the current economic climate the simple things like keeping in touch with friends and family and staying active become really important to how we feel about ourselves. We’re launching this competition just ahead of the once in a lifetime London Olympics 2012 and Paralympic Games, because this will be an inspirational time for people to revitalise their approach to feeling good and living well."

Sue Henry, director of the Year of Health and Wellbeing and organiser of “Life through the Lens” added: "Photography is a fantastic hobby that is fun and easy. We hope this competition will encourage people to get out and about and give the five ways to wellbeing a go. It’s vital we get the message out about building the five ways into your lifestyle, because not only do you feel immediate positive benefits, you can add 7.5 years to your life expectancy."

The competition has the following categories: Schools (both primary and secondary categories), young people (under 18s), adults, camera clubs and People’s Choice (a category determined by most online votes).

The closing date for entries is midnight on 30 September 2012.
