Your pictures, your world

Digital cameras in a crowd

We want to see the world through your eyes, to experience the everyday sights that capture your imagination across the planet.

We are asking anyone with a camera to send in their digital pictures.

We will be featuring many in a series of themed picture galleries in the coming months.

When taking photos or filming please do not endanger yourself or others, take unnecessary risks or infringe any laws.

Current themes

At the moment we are specifically seeking photos with the following themes:

  • Tiny
  • Silver

Please interpret the brief as widely as you can - don't just think of the obvious.

Remember we are looking for compelling photos that will grab our attention.

Instructions on how to send your pictures can be found in the box on the right; please include the name of the theme your picture relates to in the title subject heading of your e-mail.

Remember to add your name and a caption, who, what, where and when should be enough, though the more details, the better your chance of being selected.
