“I hope I can spark some creative energy in people to take shots of what inspires them about Britain. Beauty doesn’t have to be about traditionally accepted perceptions; it can be anything from memories to ideas – beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It’s important for everyone to be inspired by what’s around them, so this is a great opportunity to visualize what you see as beautiful about Britain. It’s worth it – you can win £10,000 and get your images out to 16 million people on Bing.com.”
