The top eleven images will go on display at Lord’s where they will be seen by thousands of spectators and visitors to the Home of Cricket.

The first prize value has doubled to £2,000 while two runners-up each win £1,000 and the eight shortlisted entries £250 each.

Photographers can submit up to three images with the only stipulation being that each photograph must have a cricket related theme and have been taken in 2014.
