Group Description

Nearly two months after the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, it's estimated up to 60,000 barrels of oil a day are leaking into the Gulf of Mexico.

The fall-out has not only devastated local marine life and the coastal ecosystem but has created shockwaves in the worlds of energy, finance and politics. 11 people have lost their lives, and many local people from shrimp farmers to tourism businesse could lose their livelihoods too.

We're looking for your photos that touch on an aspect of the disaster and will run a gallery of the best on guardian.co.uk and perhaps in the print edition of The Guardian too.

All photos relevant to the spill are welcome, from images of oil hitting beaches and marshes, wildlife hit by the oil and the effect on local sites, to anti-BP protests and photographs that convey the impact the incident has had beyond the Gulf.

We'll feature some of our favourites on guardian.co.uk and maybe in the newspaper version of the Guardian as well. By posting your pictures in this group you agree to let this happen (though copyright remains with you at all times).
