Take your skills to the next level with great prize

IT'S summer, so let's celebrate.

Today we open our annual reader photograph competition and we're desperate to give a feature-packed Nikon Key Mission 170 camera, worth $579, to one lucky reader.

Simply take a photograph that best expresses what summer means to you and send it to us. Could it be any easier?

Jodie Locke won our competition last year with this picture.

Over the duration of the competition we received hundreds of pictures and some were so good they made the front page. Can you get there this time?

Get your camera, or your phone out and get snapping.

Since winning the competition last year, Jodie has taken more than 10,000 photos, started an Australia- wide amateur photography Facebook page and become a regular contributor to the Warwick Daily News.

Every week Mrs Locke showcases her beautiful photos of the Southern Downs region in Wednesday's free community edition.

"If photography is your passion, then enter this competition for a really great prize,” Mrs Locke said.

"The challenge is to find a scene that captures the theme of summer and shoot it in such a way it expresses your passion.

"If you're an amateur or just taking pictures on your phone, then give it a go, your life and photography will change heaps if you win.”
