Police, camera, action! Europol has the pleasure to launch its 2016 online international law enforcement photo competition.

This annual competition fosters a growing international community of law enforcement photographers who hone their camera skills to capture striking images that stand apart through their impact, their ability to move people and their capacity for communication.

Entries are welcome from professional and amateur photographers working for law enforcement agencies and law enforcement magazines in EU countries and countries with Europol Agreements.

Eligible contestants can visit Europol's website to download full details and entry forms in EU languages, and to submit photographs in one or all of the four categories:

Making Europe safer • Organised crime • Practice makes perfect • Freestyle.

Entrants can submit up to five digital photographs each via Europol's website. The contest ends on Sunday, 31 July 2016.

Three winning photographers will win a trip for two people to the Netherlands, with a visit to Europol. Photographs from nine further entrants will appear in the 2017 Europol calendars, along with the top three.
