Our photography videos
might help students who are being encouraged to pick up their cameras and start taking pictures for the Fujifilm 2012 Student Photography Awards.
The event, which is themed as 'Extreme', is asking people to capture the meaning of the word in a single image.
One of the key requirements, however, is for all images to be originated on Fujifilm film stock before they are scanned and submitted.
In addition, participants need to be students aged 16 or above who are taking part in full or part-time professional photographic training.
People undertaking graphic design training of which photography is a major part, are also able to compete so long as they are based at a UK college or university.
The winner stands to benefit from a professionally produced portfolio and a 12-month course of mentoring for the key 2012 sponsor, Metroprint. However, runners up can also win big, with rolls of Fujifilm film up for grabs, a trophy and further awards for the colleges supplying the most entries.
In addition to encouraging more participation, the awards hope to promote the benefits of shooting on film with students encouraged to use different emulsions, including back and white, colour negative and colour transparency.
