The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) has added an open digital section to its 2007 International Projected Image Competition which has a closing date of 31 July.

The contest is open to amateurs, professionals and students and boasts three categories: General Slide (excluding Nature), Nature Slide and Open Digital.

?It has always been a great achievement to have an image accepted in this exhibition and with the introduction of the Open Digital category there is a greater opportunity to do so,? said an RPS spokeswoman.

The competition will result in an exhibition which will tour the UK from later this year.
