Happiness is...seeing photos on show.

WINNERS of a Show Me Happy photograph competition will get to see their work displayed on Teesside.

The Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Trust challenged the public to capture an image of something that makes them smile and now the winning pictures are being exhibited across the area for everyone to see.

The exhibition will be at Middlesbrough College, Marton Road Campus until February 15 before moving on to the Kirby campus until February 28.

John Kerr, creator and project manager for the competition, said: "Happiness can have a direct effect on your health, and in particular, your mental well-being.

"We are keen for people to be able to recognise this and express whatever it is that makes them happy through a photograph."

The competition was the first part of a 21-month campaign aimed at tackling the stigma that surrounds mental health, and raising people's awareness of the importance of happiness and the effect it can have on them.
