For the 2022 Student competition, we are asking entrants to interpret the below brief.

Recently we've had to think differently about how we connect in more ways than we could have imagined. Around the globe we've embraced a modern evolution of communication, giving us a fresh perspective on connecting. It's also been a time to reflect on making new relationships while sustaining the old ones as well as reconnecting with our surroundings.

How do you connect with your surroundings or local environment? How do you create bonds with your family, friends and colleagues? How do you nurture and develop these links to ensure they endure for years to come?

Be it connecting virtually or in real life, show us in five to 10 images how you, or someone you document, interacts with the world. Your images can be taken on any device, shot in any style - be black & white or colour - and approached from any angle you feel is best. While creative responses are encouraged, it's key to stick to the brief.
