The British Heart Foundation – Red for Heart Photo Contest

bhfThe British Heart Foundation is asking the people of the UK to get snapping and enter the first Red for Heart Digital Photography Competition.

The three winning, and a selection of finalist, images will launch National Heart Month in February 2010 with an exhibition on the landscape area next to the Merlin Entertainments London Eye, which receives an average footfall of six million visitors per year.

The theme is Red for Heart – the colour red must be incorporated into the photo, but you don’t necessarily have to feature hearts – The picture could show what heart means to you. Beyond this, the brief is open to interpretation and we are encouraging creativity! For each image submitted a short supporting statement of no more than 100 words needs to be written to describe the picture.
