The competition:
Throughout the Wimbledon Tennis competition from June 27th until July 10th, we’ll ask you to tweet your best image (just one) captured during the tournament with the #FixEvents hashtag.

The theme is Wimbledon Tennis 2016. It can be of any subject but it must be within the Wimbledon grounds. You can tweet your image at any point during the day, but you must include #FixEvents in your tweet and the image has to have been captured during the Wimbledon 2016 competition.

Our judge will be critically acclaimed Sports Photographer, Bob Martin. He will draw up a shortlist of his favourite images and will decide on a winner. The winner will be announced shortly after the event via Twitter and the winner will receive a copy of Bob Martins book 1/1000th.
