A £1,000 top prize is on offer to UK photographers who can capture an image based on Britain's commemorative coins.

The Change Checker's #Britain in Coins contest is open to amateur and professional photographers alike - all you have to do is check the change in your pocket and take a photo inspired by one or more of the coins. With almost 100 £2, £1 and 50p coins in circulation, there's plenty of inspiration, with topics including the Olympics, Kew Gardens and bridges.

Mark Liversidge of Change Checker's said: '‘The purpose of the #BritainInCoins competition is to encourage the general public to check their coins carefully and to try to capture an image which draws inspiration from these themes.

‘People will be amazed at the variety of designs on their cash and once you start discovering the treasure in your pocket, it becomes addictive!’

The contest runs from 16 June to 30 September and will be judged by a panel consisting of Matt Tindall, creative director of The Westminster Collection, former Royal Mint chief engraver Matthew Bonaccorsi and award-winning photographer Stephen Banks.

One winner, whose image is judged to be the best entry in terms of its overall artistic and technical merit, will pocket the first prize of £1,000 and five runners-up will receive a prize of a Royal Mint 2014 Year Set of coins.
