    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.

      Title of my entry: "Biking along the river Amstel (Amsterdam/Netherlands)" - Getting up early around sunrise makes it worthwhile to shoot pictures of a brandnew born day. Holland looks quite extraordinary at that time of day.

      My photo is from a textile trip to India. We went to visit the old town market in Ahmedabad. It was a real experience having all those saris thrown at you just to choose one to buy! There were also flower sellers and food stalls. It was real adventure experiencing the physical and personal crush of shopping with so many people!

      Hiya! I would love to win this camera - I went to Europe last year and for the first time understood why people are so entranced with taking photographs! My photo is called Welcome! - it's a bike standing outside a store in Gamla Stan -the Old Town- in Stockholm. It just looked so gorgeous I had to take a photo! Good luck to everyone entering :)
