Organisers state: ‘The Spirit of the Games is not just about capturing some great action shots of the Olympics. We want to see what the Games means to you – the crowds, atmosphere, athletes and celebrations.’

The winner, chosen by judges, will receive a Sigma SD1 Merrill and Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM lens kit.

While, the photographer who earns the most ‘likes’ on Facebook will bag a Sigma DP2 Merrill.

Photographers can enter up to five images and the closing date for entries is 31 August.

Rules say that photographers will retain copyright and that entries may only be used for publicity, in connection with the competition.
