There are some fascinating traditional festivals that take place around the globe every month but probably none more bloody (and few more colourful) than the Andean festival of Tinku. Each May, thousands of indigenous Bolivian indians ascend upon the isolated, mountainous city of Potosi looking to pick a fight. In a ritual dating back 600 years, local indians slug it out, toe-to-toe until blood is spilt. The spilt blood - an offering to the earth goddess Pachamama - should ensure a successful harvest for the coming season.

Done well, street photography can be a pretty confronting business. For most photographers there's a line that's difficult to cross when it comes to a poking a camera lens in where it's clearly not wanted. But for those who deliver some of street photography's most iconic imagery, that line's location is blurry at best; non-existent for some.

Gulp is a Sumo Science (Will Studd and Ed Patterson) produced, short film depicting the daily doings of a fisherman going about his fishy business. Shot on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales - no pun intended - using a Nokia N8, it gained the Guinness World Record for the largest animation set, with some scenes measuring in at a whopping 1,000 square metres - that's 11,000 square feet for the metrically challenged.
