ASPIRING photographers are being sought to enter a competition that could net them a �1,000 prize.
The theme for submissions is exploring the idea of spirit of place and diversity.
Three finalists will then be judged at a prestigious awards ceremony in Royal Horseguards, Whitehall, by a distinguished panel of industry professionals in February.
Angelo Iudice, director of photo charity Accademia Apulia, highlighted the district of Boca, in Argentina, as an example of the theme.
He said: “This is a true expression of a diverse melting pot after many immigrants from Europe settled. It is a deprived area but through their resilience they have transformed the area into a tourist attraction.”
Iudice wants people from a diverse array of backgrounds to enter the competition.
