The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, now in its 241st year, has opened its doors to established and unknown artists to submit work for this year's show.
Nancy Guerrero, who was born in Chile and now lives in France, came to London just to enter her work. Her piece is one of an estimated 10,000 that will be submitted for consideration this year.
Jane Williams has been painting for "six or seven years" and it is the third time she has submitted her work. She said: "I've never been chosen, but it would be nice to have a piece exhibited."
Former Chelsea School of Art students Joc Marchington and Jon Brantschen submitted work from two series of photographs examining space and reality.
Figurative painter Anna Gardiner, a former Royal Academy student, has shown her work several times at the Summer Exhibition. She said: "There's something about it that keeps drawing me back."
Amsterdam-based artist and designer Mariska Meijers made a special trip to London to submit her work. She said: "I am a commercial artist. I like my work to appeal to the public and make them smile."
Brussels-based photographer Laurent Friob entered work from a series of images he shot in Iceland. The Summer Exhibition opens on 8 June and runs until 16 August.
