This autumn sees the launch of this year's Red for 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.

As the BHF is marking its 50th birthday in 2011, the pictures should have an air of celebration. The winning images will be used to launch National Heart Month in February. They will be exhibited across the UK, 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 Canon camera, and a hardback photograph album worth £100.

How to enter

Each entrant can submit up to three digital photos. The fee is £10 for adults and £5 for students. The competition closes on 9 January 2011. For full details of how to enter, image size, and how to submit images, go to bhf.org.uk/redphotos.
