Selection of pictures from

January's theme: the future. Photographer Andrew Kerr: 'Already Birmingham's most iconic building, the Selfridges building at Birmingham's Bullring is a photographer's dream.'

February's theme: budget travel. Photographer David Meredith: 'This is of the Grand Hotel Scarborough. We got a coach trip from Leamington Spa to York, where we visited the minster and railway museum. We then stayed overnight at the hotel with evening meal and breakfast. The next day we had a few hours to explore Scarborough, then on to Whitby and back home, all for the princely sum of £39.95 each. Great value and great fun.'

June's theme: city life. Photographer Martin Higgs: 'A peaceful summer's evening reflected in the fountains of Le Louvre. After a hectic Parisian day, couples chat and relax by the famous pyramids.'

September's theme: the four elements Photographer Alek Lindus: 'Samos, Greece. It was the colour of the aftermath of fire I was after here. There has been so much destruction of the island by it and yet it has a type of beauty, too.'

October's theme: I am a travel photographer. Photographer Barrington Russell: Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India. 'An Indian wife departs for the bazaar through the decaying labyrinth of Jodhpur, India; taking care to avoid the puddles and streams of rubbish and effluence. Working men can be seen behind sacks of clay and sand, resting from their efforts to renovate the streets.'

Theme: summer. 'Having a quiet snooze in Southwold, Suffolk.' Dan Chung's first choice: 'This is my favourite photograph because David Meredith has captured a very British moment perfectly. I love the way you can tell just how relaxed the suited man is, even though he is actually quite small in the frame. The picture has a timeless air about it; to me it looks like it could just as easily have been taken in the 1950s. David has cpatured the vivid colours and got the composition spot on - he makes me want to go and rent a chalet in Southwold.'
