The competition offers a prize of £1,000 to the photo that best captures the concept of love. Photographers were asked to showcase the thousands of little love stories taking place around us every day; with entrants capturing these moments using an array of photography; from abstracts to popular portraiture; from macro shots to breathtaking landscapes.
This year, in addition to the main prize, every entry wins the chance to feature in the UK’s first giant ‘love’ themed printed photo mosaic, to be displayed at a famous London location and created by renowned artist Helen Marshall – known for her Diamond Jubilee double-decker sized mosaic of the Queen.
Four experts in photography and love will judge the entries: top Psychologist and eHarmony relationship expert Dr. Linda Papadopoulos; editor of Practical Photography magazine Ben Hawkins; top freelance photographer and popular Instagramer Alex Douglas (who has shot for the likes of Budweiser and Proudlockstyle); and eHarmony.co.uk’s Managing Director Romain Bertrand.
