Join our ‘London Through Your Eyes’ photo contest in October! Capture the city’s essence and share your unique perspective.

This October, let’s celebrate the beauty of London in the embrace of autumn! The theme for our photography competition is ‘London Through Your Eyes’. We’re looking for photographs that showcase the vibrant hues of the city this season. From the rich colours of autumn flowers and falling leaves to the refreshing rain creating reflections in puddles, every aspect that highlights London’s autumnal beauty is welcome.

Yes, ok, the weather might be a bit unpredictable, but that’s what makes it even more exciting! Rain can add a dramatic and fresh dimension to your photographs, making the colours pop and creating mesmerizing reflections. So, don’t let the rain deter you; instead, use it to your advantage to capture London in a different light.
