The Zoological Society of London is running an animal photography competition. The contest is open to professionals and amateurs, adults and children.

Competition organisers say: "Jaw-droppingly good photography is a must – but we are looking for more than a pretty picture. We want images that take your breath away – just like real animals do – and challenge people's perceptions of wildlife and our relationship with it."

Enter your photographs to be in with a chance of winning a part of the £10,000 prize money - see here for details.

To inspire you, we present some of last year's entries.
