Your Mission: Capture examples of something which looks simple, but is actually performing a very complicated function. Maybe a flock of birds soaring effortlessly together in their thousands, or the intricate beauty of a snowflake? Look for simple designs which perform an incredible function, or turn your camera to nature – there are examples everywhere!

Your Reward: The photo which best captures something difficult in a simple manner will win £100 of Amazon vouchers. The top 15 images will also be featured in an EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: October 12, 2015
