Photo opportunity

22nd June 2007 at 01:00
A leading international picture agency has launched a photography competition for teenagers.

To enter the My Britain contest, 13- to 18-year-olds must express how they see themselves and their lives and communities. The aim of the competition is to compare different perspectives from children across the country.

Getty Images is offering as top prize a one-day internship with a renowned photographer. The winner will be able to choose from news, sport, entertainment and creative photography.

Depending on the choice, the winner could be photographing a Premiership football match or covering one of the day's news events.

The competition will be judged by a panel from Getty Images, and the winners displayed on a website.

Adrian Murrell, the global vice-president of editorial at Getty, said:

"Regional identity is fantastically emotive and it will be fascinating to see the next generation's perspective on this very topical issue."

The competition will run until September 15. The shortlist of regional finalists will be announced in September, followed by the announcement of the overall winner.
