The Mayor of Londons annual anti-racism rise photography competition launched today and runs until 2nd June 2006.
Prize winners will receive digital cameras and have their work displayed at a major outdoor exhibition on Trafalgar Square during July, plus exhibitions at City Hall and at the Rise: London United Music Festival which is due to take place in Finsbury Park on Saturday 8th July.
Mayor Ken Livingstone said: I want to see images which reflect one of the greatest aspects of this city that London is one of the most diverse cities in the world and its different communities enjoy living side by side. This competition forms part of the rise festival, which is the largest anti-racism event in Europe and urges all communities to rise against prejudice
One of the best aspects of this contest is that everyone from children to adults to grandparents has the same chance of winning if they take the right picture. Look around in your neighbourhood, you might find you have a scene that captures Londons diversity right on your door step. Good luck to everyone who enters.
