Budding photographers are being encouraged to showcase local projects in a competition to find London's Picture of Sustainability.
Individuals and communities in Croydon are challenged to capture images of inspiring green or charitable initiatives in their area.
Examples in the borough include the Croydon Youth Forest, Tramlink or Woodcote Primary School 'Invest to Save' projects.
The sustainability competition was launched to encourage residents to consider the meaning of sustainable living.
Submission must be uploaded to the competition website with a short caption.
A panel of experts will judge the entries on concept as well as skill.
There will be two overall winners with prizes awarded to the entry with the most public votes and the best show as chosen by the judges.
Self-confessed 'green-leaner' Magic FM DJ Neil Fox, is part of the judging panel. He believes the photo challenge will encourage exploration of London's many sustainable initiatives.
He said: "Photographs capture the imagination and we hope the competition will do just that for London.
"It's an exciting opportunity to showcase people's different ideas of sustainability ahead of the Olympics.
"You don't need to be a photographer to have a camera and an opinion. The idea is to provoke and capture people's thoughts whatever their age, ability or lifestyle choices."
The competition closes for entries on 22 July 2012.
