I can do that!: Snap to it and help change attitudes.
MENCAP are inviting anyone with a learning disability - and their families and friends - to enter their new photography competition.
And if you win you will have your work displayed at one of the world's top museums of art and design, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London?
The charity is looking for photos that show what everyday life is like for people with a learning disability.
It can be happy, sad or humorous, but the main aim should be to show what it means to have a learning disability.
Competition judge and top photographer David Bailey is encouraging photos from a personal perspective. He says: ``Photography can tell stories, so use the camera to tell yours.''
As well as having the opportunity to have your work on public display at the V&A, prizes include a new digital camera - a Fujifilm FinePix F601 Zoom for the special Fujifilm award - and the chance to spend a day with a top professional photographer on a shoot.
The competition is open to the UK's 1.5 million children and adults with a learning disability, their families, friends, supporters, teachers or colleagues.
Winning photos will be displayed at the Victoria & Albert Museum from Valentine's Day on 14 February to March 13. The closing date is 15 December - so get snapping!
