Summer is the perfect time to get out and about with your camera whether youre at one of the many shows around the county, or just enjoying the great outdoors. And when there are great prizes up for grabs, there really is no excuse for leaving the camera at home.

The closing date for our super competition is September 14th and our judging panel, led by Lancashire Life editor Roger Borrell, picture editor John Cocks and David Pilkington from competition sponsors Wilkinsons Cameras, will decide who has won the great prizes on offer.

The top three including the winner of our new Young Photographer of the Year category for under 16-year-olds will receive terrific camera equipment supplied by Wilkinsons.

Top prize is a Nikon D5100 and AF-S 18-55 VR worth 630, and the runner-up will receive a Nikon Coolpix P7100 worth 400. Our young photographer of the year will win a Nikon Coolpix AW100 worth 250.
