Voters should assess the relevance of both the headline and text in conjunction with the image. The emphasis is on finding a relevant, current story; entries using still lifes such as coinage, notes etc are liable to be rejected.

I've used a white cutting board to highlight the dark and light reflection on the oil letters. And for those who know morse code "-... .--." stands for bp (I googled it ; )
