Win! digital camera with your pictures

This is your chance to win the latest digital camera by entering your pictures in our Life Thru the Lens photographic competition.

Anyone can enter – you don’t have to have a top of the range camera – you could even take them on your phone. Whatever you choose as your inspiration, make sure you get your entry in by the new closing date of Friday, August 31.
