"All You Need is Love", "The Power of Love", "How Deep is your Love?" and "Love is All Around" - just a few examples of popular songs about love. So, love is an important part of our lives - but how can we capture an emotion in an image? Most emotions are shown through a physical response, and love is no different, whether it is making someone a cup of tea, sitting and listening, holding hands, the putting of others' needs before one's own, the ways in which "love" can be communicated are numerous. The ability to show love is also not limited to humans; animals communicate their affection for one another and for us in their own, inimitable ways. You may, of course, interpret the theme for this competition in any way you choose and we look forward to receiving your entries.


The lucky winner will receive their own hardback copy of the Getty Images Year In Focus 2013 book.

Competition Judge:

Paul Chapman

Paul is a keen amateur photographer and sees the creative aspects of photography as a welcome break from his day job as an Engineering Consultant in the Oil Industry.

He always enjoyed photography growing up, and recalls many evenings spent viewing family holiday slides and prints. The advent of digital photography coincided with the birth of his daughter, Vicky, and since then Paul has moved from point-and-shoot cameras, through bridge cameras to now a full frame DSLR. His love of photography has also rubbed off on Vicky as she has just started a degree course in media production at Winchester University.

A regular contributor to The Photographic Angle, some of Paulís photographs are currently touring with the No Briton Is An Island, Splash of Colour and Four Elements exhibitions.

He enjoys photographing a wide range of subjects but his location in Surrey lends itself in particular to nature and wildlife. In addition Paul enjoys architectural photography and he contributed a set of photos taken at a Photographic Angle exhibition which were used in one of our blog articles. Creative and abstract shots also form a part of his portfolio.

Paul is an active member on Flickr, adding new pictures regularly as well as acting as admin for two groups, and he curates PhotoSnapshots, an on-line magazine on Flipboard that has over 2 million page flips to date.
