Win! A break for two in New York
Sunday 23 May 2010
The Independent on Sunday has teamed up with a children's charity and a leading photography organisation to ask young people what town and city life means to them.
Each year thousands of young people from more than 100 countries enter the Shoot Nations competition. The fifth competition, launched yesterday, is asking for images of what it's like to live in an urban area – where more than half the world's population now live.
UK entrants – in two categories, 11-16 and 17-25 – should submit three shots, with an explanation of how the photo reveals their feelings about their home city. Shortlisted UK entries will go on MTV.co.uk and the winner will travel to New York to attend a ceremony at the UN. The competition is organised by Shoot Experience and the charity Plan UK. For details of how to enter go to www.shootnations.org.
