"This year’s event will be different to other years due to the prevailing circumstances," said one of its organisers Anne Kent.

"Usually visitors come to us be it our homes, galleries or village/church halls to view artwork and sometimes artists at work."

The Niddart trail takes placed in and around Pateley Bridge each August and features the work of artist based in the town and surrounding villages.

"We are feeling optimistic that when the Niddart exhibition goes on-line for the duration of August that there will be some benefits, such as attracting more people to visit and enjoy the wealth of artistic talent within the dale and potentially reach a national audience," said Mrs Kent,

The deadline for entry to the exhibition is June 30.

The optional theme is Woodland in recognition of the 250-year anniversary of the forming of the boundaries of Knaresborough Forest.
