At Eureka we commission striking and original photography (see the “Eureka photography” slideshow tab above to see some of the best). Could you produce something similar and be our next great photographer?

At Eureka we think that original and elegant photography can help to make science, technology and the environment come alive for our readers. Many of the photographers we have used have won awards for their work. We now want to find and inspire a new generation of young talent so, in association with Science Photo Library and the Royal Institution, we are launching our first photography competition.

We are offering three prizes, each of £1,000, for a single still image, a project of still images and a moving image. In return we’d like young photographers between 18 and 26 to send us original work on the themes that Eureka covers: science, technology, engineering, environment etc. Also you must explain to us briefly why your subject is interesting, ie the story behind the image.

For details of how to enter, please read the terms and conditions below, but all entrants must include the following details:

Crystal Palace Football Club joins forces with Croydon’s young people and youth support organisations to counter the negative public perception of young people and highlight the positive contributions that they can offer to their communities.

In response to the Croydon riots and to counteract the negative perception of young people in Croydon, an event, Action for Impact, is being held on 02 February 2012 at Crystal Palace Football Stadium to showcase the diverse range of activities and support available to young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). Action for Impact will also focus on the creative work many young people get involved in through community based activities tailored to enhance young people’s professional and personal development.

Following the recent riots, research into Metropolitan Police Service statistics show that while only 0.07% of young people commit serious violent crime [Independent Academic Research Studies (IARS) 2011], this is in stark contrast to recent research findings relating to perceptions of young people and violence.

The 99% campaign, run by the IARS, reported that 44% of the 1000 adults who were asked in a 2010 poll: “How many young people do you think commit serious youth violence” answered between 5%-20%. 25% of those asked thought that over 50% of young people commit serious youth violence (IARS 2010).

The summer riots did little to build local employers’ confidence in employing young people. According to Business & Education London South (BELS), a local youth charity, many young people in Croydon who did not get involved in the riots and who positively engage in services to help them into work, education or training are being tarnished by the negative public perception of young people.

“Most of the young people with whom we work have expressed their disapproval of the riots.” says BELS’ Chief Executive, Michael Manning Prior. “In fact, their main concern is to secure their futures through getting a foothold on gainful employment.

The aftermath of the riots has seen a general negativity towards young people and BELS wants to counter this by highlighting the enthusiasm with which the young people of Croydon embrace the support services provided to help them.”

Action for Impact is organised by BELS, together with young Croydon people and with the sponsors, Crystal Palace Football Club, who fully support and contribute to youth development in Croydon. Youth service providers such as Croydon Youth Development Trust, Positive Arts and The Crystal Palace Education Centre, supported by local young people, will give attendees the opportunity to have practical experience of film, music, sport, communication and art activities.

Action for Impact takes place on 02 February 2012 at 2.00pm in The Players’ Lounge, Crystal Palace Football Stadium. The event is open to all those interested in or working with young people aged 16-19 and each attendee is encouraged to bring along three young people to share in the enjoyment.

To register for the event, email info@bels.org.uk or telephone 0208 726 0700.
