A moment of family fun, a majestic sunset at Port Stephens or a clear blue Canberra sky captured on a ride around Lake Burley Griffin.

These are just some of the diverse and eye-catching shots so far entered in The Canberra Times Summer photo competition.

The competition gives budding snappers the chance to have their favourite shots published for everybody to enjoy, and with a string of hot days predicted into the new year, now could be the perfect time to capture the season.

Prizemoney is also up for grabs.

For your opportunity to win, all you have to do is snap one of those magic summer moments and send it to The Canberra Times.

First prize is $500, second $300, and third $200.

A selection of the entries will be published in the newspaper and on canberratimes.com.au throughout the summer holidays.

Photographers must send their snaps, attached as JPEG files, to photocomp@canberratimes.com.au. The images must be a minimum of 150Kb and a maximum of 1Mb.

There is a maximum limit of three photos per person, and entrants should include their names, addresses, phone numbers and brief descriptions of their shots.

The competition will close at 4pm on January 20.
