'Busy Street' by Elli Kraizberg

If you have a dab hand with a camera, and can take stunning photographs, then you can always try for chances by entering the Urban Photographer of the Year competition. This year the theme is 'Cities at Work', and the aim is to capture the essence of urban life.

The competition is free to enter, so there is nothing to lose, and you might even be in with a chance of winning a photo-safari holiday. First prize gives you a seven day trip to one of five exotic locations: America, Africa, India, Mongolia, or the Arctic. Second and third places are pretty cool too: an Olympus OM-D Camera and a Blue Dot Display Stand.

It is a worldwide competition, so anyone can take part; there is even a separate contest for students. You can enter up to a total of twenty-four photos, one for each hour of the day. For example, if you take a picture of London at 11pm, when you fill in the form, you will type in the location and time. All the 11pm photos will then be judged together, while the photos for 2pm, etc. will be judged separately.

There is also the option to enter your photos into categories: Travel/Transport, Workplace, Architecture, Urban Regeneration, Environment, or Other.
