GET your cameras at the ready – it’s nearly time for The News One Christmas Day photography contest.

Just like our popular One Summer’s Day contest, the rules for One Christmas Day are simple.

Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing on Christmas Day, we want you to take a photo that sums up the day and then send it in to us.

If our judges pick out your entry, you’ll win a £100 gift voucher to spend at Garsons Garden Centre in Titchfield, which stocks a large range including festive food, plants, gifts and homeware.

The winning photo will also be featured in The News, along with the best of the other entries.

Above are Mark and Ruth Cole, an educational manager, 45, who won the contest last year.

Mark, 50, a teacher, of Rothesay Road, Gosport, snapped a picture of Ruth wearing his Santa hat and beard, while pulling a peculiar expression.

He said: ‘She won’t let me live that one down, and she wants to take part again.

‘Unfortunately we will be doing fancy dress again on Christmas Day, and we’ll see what gem we can come up with this time.

‘We spent the vouchers and got lots of new gardening tools.’

To take part, simply email your photos to onechristmasday@thenews.co.uk with your name, address, a daytime/mobile phone number, a description of the picture and who is in it

Closing date for entries is midnight on Monday, December 30.

If you’ve got any funny or quirky Christmas Day video footage, we’d like to see that as well – the deadline is the same – and may show it on our website, portsmouth.co.uk.
