The theme is One Colour Frame and photographers are asked to send in close-up, macro or micro pictures where a single colour fills most of the frame to create a powerful or poetic effect.

The winner receives £300 and will be featured in Amateur Photographer magazine as well as securing a place in the permanent online exhibition at All the finalist pictures will be exhibited in the online gallery too and the best ones will be featured in Amateur Photographer magazine.
