As the excitement surrounding the first-ever Youth Olympic Games in Singapore this August continues to build, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is eager to get you in on the action with a special photo contest on: www.flickr.com/groups/youtholympics

Youth Olympic Games Ambassadors Yelena Isinbayeva (a two-time Olympic gold-medal winning pole vaulter) and Michael Phelps (a 14-time gold-medal winning swimmer) are asking to the public to share photos that you think embody the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games. The winner of the contest will be flown to Singapore, where they will capture history by becoming an official IOC photographer at the inaugural Summer Youth Olympic Games and receive a training session from an experienced Olympic photographer!

Find out more from Yelena and Michael here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KLCCcTww78

The IOC will choose the lucky winner on 31 July
