Amateur Photography Comp Wants Your Shots Of London

Judging by the 125,000 images in the Londonist Flickr pool, many of our readers are a bit handy with the camera. A new competition from charity Fight For Sight now offers an even more worthy place to upload your shots of the capital.

The My View of London competition seeks amateur snaps of London in four categories: Colour, Love, A New Perspective and Room with a View. The best images will receive some pretty impressive prizes including camera equipment and a two-night stay in that massive new hotel on Westminster Bridge roundabout.

Fight for Sight has 45 years of experience raising money for research into blindness and eye disease. The rationale behind this competition is to get Londoners looking at their city in new ways, and appreciating how much reliance we place on our vision.

As usual these days, the initiative is backed by a number of celebrities. One of the few we've heard of is Boris Johnson, who offers this shot of City Hall and Tower Bridge.

The competition closes on 23 June. Entrants must be 18 years or over. Enter here.
