    A competition from the Book Depository and travel guide supremos Frommers to win a fantastic Nikon D3100*. Just submit your favourite spring time holiday photo and our independent judges will decide a winner.

    One entry only per person please so choose carefully!

    To Enter

    1) Visit the flickr group page we've set up, join the group and submit your ONE photo.

    2) Enter the photo's title and your details below.

    Competition closes Friday 20th April at 5pm GMT

    Update: The competition is closed now and here is the winner.

    *D3100 employs Nikon's latest breakthrough technology to deliver superb results. A newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor with 14.2 effective megapixels works in tandem with new EXPEED 2 image processing engine to produce highly detailed images containing rich tonal gradations and faithful color. This combination also helps produce beautifully defocused backgrounds - a hallmark of quality digital SLR cameras. In addition, a maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12800 equivalent using the Hi 2 setting) allows you to shoot without worrying about camera-shake blur.

      Read the terms of this competition.....every Entry become owned by book depository and they reserve right to use them as they so wish..... you won't see a penny in payment!!!! Also means that you can't legally ever use or reproduce that image again for yourself, another competition or sale...Book Depository OWN IT. Good photographs are worth money, only ever enter photo competitions that don't STEAL your copyright, with offers of a paltry basic SLR as prize, They even state that they(book depository) don't even guarantee winner will receive the it is not going to be supplied by them.

      I just uploaded 'Remember'. I took this photo at the Hiroshima Memorial in Japan in spring 2010. Two Japanese girls stopped in a silent moment of prayer to remember the victims of Hiroshima. It was a touching thing to witness and this photo captures the moment.
