IT IS that time of year again for all you keen photographers to get your cameras at the ready.

We would like you to get your camera out and snap away on Saturday, August 23 to be in with a chance of winning The News’ One Summer’s Day competition.

Whether you’re lounging in the sun, relaxing at the beach with your family or enjoying the sights of the south with your friends, we want to see it.

You could be visiting the Portsmouth International Kite Festival on Southsea Common, spending the day rocking out at the Victorious Festival on Southsea seafront or spending time with the family.

As long as your shot reflects a typical summer’s day, it will be considered.

Jessica Denholm (pictured), of Almondsbury Road, Paulsgrove, won the competition last year with a picture of her young son, Noah.

She said: ‘I would definitely encourage people to get involved.

‘I’m so glad I did now. Noah loved it.’

The News’ chief photographer Malcolm Wells gives this advice: ‘We are usually attracted to look at things in life because they are colourful, attractive to the eye, different or even weird.

‘This happens to us all many times a day, in fact many times an hour.

‘So on Saturday, August 23, please take a photograph of whatever you have seen that pleases you.

‘We hope that it will please and attract our judges and readers of The News alike.’

To enter One Summer’s Day, email your shots to or post them to Ellie Pilmoor, One Summer’s Day, The News, 1000 Lakeside, North Harbour, Western Road, Portsmouth, PO6 3EN.

Only photos taken on Saturday, August 23, will be considered.

Please include your full name, address and daytime contact number, plus a description of what and who is in the picture.
