What does 'heart' mean to you? Enter our photo competition
Sunday 18 October 2009
They are usually associated with the cheesy cards, stuffed toys and foil-wrapped chocolate lollies of Valentine's Day. But red hearts are taking on a new significance with the launch of the "Red Heart" digital photo competition, in aid of the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
Working in conjunction with The Independent on Sunday, the BHF is inviting aspiring photographers to submit pictures featuring the colour red and – while they don't need to feature hearts – considering the question of "what 'heart' means to you". The winning images will be used to launch National Heart Month in February. They will be exhibited on London's South Bank, and will be published in the IoS. The competition is open to photographers of all ages, with prizes that include a masterclass with the award-winning photographer John Angerson, a Panasonic camera and digital photo frames.
What you need to do...
Each entrant can submit up to three digital photos. Entrance costs £10 for adults and £5 for children. The competition closes on 6 January 2010. For full details of how to enter, image size and the submission of images, go to bhf.org.uk/redphotos.
