BBC Your perspective on the world: 10-16 May 2003

Your part in the news is important to us and we’d like to see the images you are taking using the latest digital technology.

have already received thousands of fantastic images from around the world so why not send us yours.

Each week our picture editor will select and publish the best of those here each Friday – so do keep on sending them in.

Remember, whilst we are after news images we’re also interested in your visual interpretation of global issues.

Any pictures directly related to a current news event may be used immediately within a picture gallery or story.

How to submit a picture

So if you think you have a photograph worth looking at, if you found yourself in the right place at the right time,

send it to BBC News Online.

If you want to e-mail it to us, send it to

If you want to send your picture from your mobile phone, dial 07970 885089. You can send them from any network or phone. Please send the large full size images (usually 640×480 pixels) taken by the mobiles otherwise they are too small to publish.

Don’t forget to include your name and some background information as to what the image is about and why you took the picture as this will increase your chances of selection.

HOWEVER. As this technology is so exciting and immediate innit? is does represent a further turn of the screw, in trying to keep copyright, AND get a reward for a photographers labour. In the ‘activism’ front though, I expect it is possible to take a picture of, say a police line, with the digital camera of a mobile phone, upload to the the BBC, and have it on the Six O’clock News !! and not get paid!!
