Played On, by Jim Campbell

If you didn’t already know it, I’m a bit of a cricket fanatic. Admittedly not quite as much as my brother, who can recall batting averages, but enough that I’ve been staying up into the small hours to listen to coverage of the Ashes from Australia. So when the Wisden-MCC Cricket Photograph of the Year competition was announced, I got a bit excited.

You can submit up to three photographs to the competition, and they can show anything provided that it is cricket-related. Whether you have Graeme Swann taking the final wicket at the Adelaide Oval two weeks ago, or the sun setting on a game of beach cricket in the summer, it’s all good. Just make sure that they were taken this calendar year and you lodge them by 17 January 2011.

The winner walks away with a cash prize of £500 and a £500 voucher to spend on Canon equipment with Park Cameras. I’m looking forward the results of this one.

Full details are available on the MCC website.
