A photographic competition has been launched to capture the UK's First World War memorials
Entries are now open for the 2014 Memorial Awareness Board Annual Photography Competition, which this year commemorates the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.
Novice and professional photographers are invited to send in their photos of memorials which they feel best represent the First World War, along with 50 words explaining their choice.
Entries close on July 31, with the winner of the £1,000 grand prize announced on September 1.
The Board is a campaign group working to promote the stone memorial industry.
“Memorials play an important part in our social history whether they are personal or public," said Chris Lodge, of the group.
"This year’s theme will enable entrants to share their images of family headstones or village cenotaphs, all of which will tell a story and allow us to remember the sacrifice made so by many in the First World War.”
