Next week a photography competition invites the public to capture digital images of the place they call ?home?.

?From castles to stone huts, suburban semi-detached homes to houseboats, WAG-mansions to squats, post?modern penthouses to quaint cottages, the public is invited to help document the harmonies and paradoxes of home life across the UK over a single seven-day period,? explained a spokesman for the organisers.

The images must be taken between 24-30 September.

The themes will be announced on the project?s website at www.ukathome.co.uk, which had yet to go live at the time of writing.

The best pictures will be published in a book next February.

Backed by home furnishing firm, Ikea, the competition is open to anyone in the UK who owns a digital camera or cameraphone.

Professional photographers taking part include Guardian photographer Roger Bamber.

Full terms and conditions have yet to be released.
