Entry to the Foto8 Summershow 2012 - one of the most widely anticipated and provocative shows in the international photography calendar - is now open.
The show is the only open entry, annual photography show in the UK - encouraging any photographer, from any background to enter work.
Photographers of all levels are encouraged to enter images that provide a window on life, convey stories and evoke questions.
The show's diverse combination of work sparks debate and raises questions about the nature of photography today.
"Anyone can take a picture but the fun and interest is exploring what makes a great photograph," said Alison Jackson, photographer and Foto8 Summershow Judge 2012.
"What is so exciting about this competition is that it does just this by being open to everyone across all subject matter. Choosing just one image to win is wonderfully provocative and I am very much looking forward to taking part as well as seeing the new talent coming through."
Deadline for entries is May 14, 2012.
