Each month we ask our fans to post three photos in our Facebook group. At the end of the months, all photos are uploaded to an album on our Facebook page where everybody can like their favourite images. The ten images with the most likes at the end of the month go through to the final, with a chance of featuring on our Exmoor4all 2016 calendar.
