The Royal Photographic Society's latest super ambitious project needs your help — especially if you live in southeast or north London.

The organisation is aiming to collate an installation of photos of every street in London — that's around 45,000 snaps — as taken by the capital's residents. There's been a strong response to the Bleeding London appeal so far, but there are a few areas which need photographing.

If you live in (or just happen to be visiting) N18, NW7, NW9, N17, SE27, SE28, E9, N5 or N9, get your camera out.

Photos for the Bleeding London project can by uploaded to a dedicated site, and must be taken after March 2014. The closing date is 31 October.

For the really keen, there are prizes on offer for people who take the most photos — including a A Society Gold Medal and Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera.

The project is named after and inspired by Geoff Nicholson's novel Bleeding London in which a character named Stuart London walks the complete length and breadth of London.
