    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

    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.

      To be honest this was even a little early for Spring, but we were delighted to be in Japan and find Spring blossom, I love the backdrop of Himeji Castle

      I posted a photo of the London Eye, from my 2011 backpacking trip. I fell in love with London Eye, so I sat on the grass for hours on my last night there, staring at it. :)

      we had a chance meeting with a local Kangaroo whilst visiting Philip Island, Australia. A fantastic memory and a great photo that brings me back to the very day the moment I see it ;o)
