If asked to picture the Today programme any number of images could come to mind. We'd like your answers to: "What is The Today Programme?". It can be about the presenters, the content, the type of listener who tunes in: you decide. A cartoon, a photograph, a poem or indeed a song. It can be in any style. It can be positive or negative, serious or satirical, colour or black & white, you can post us a print (we WILL NOT be able to return original material to you)
or you can email us a JPEG.

We will then convene a small panel to judge what you send, with some of the best appearing on this website and the programme.

By sending us your work, you're granting us the right to publish it on this and other associated BBC websites.
