Photographers with images captured on digital cameras can sign up and enter them to the competition through an online form. You can continue to submit images until the competition deadline on 31 March 2006.

Images must be taken from a camera that is at least six million pixels and the file must be in the RAW format - more information on the digital rules can be found here on the competition's rules page .

Organised by the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine, last year's competition received nearly 17,000 entries from more than 55 countries including New Zealand, Argentina, India, Spain and Canada.

Winners of this year's competition will receive a share of the £15,500 prize pool and will see their images displayed at the Natural History Museum, in BBC Wildlife Magazine and in the searchable gallery, online from 19 October 2006.
