One Summer's Day 2013: Fingers on buttons, folks...this Saturday is D-day

It's time once again to get your cameras and mobile phones at the ready for the Belfast Telegraph's fourth One Summer's Day photography competition.

The Belfast Telegraph and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) have again teamed up to launch the country's biggest mass participation photographic event.

We're calling on everyone to pick up a photographic device on a specific day this summer – this Saturday (June 29) – and take a photograph that illustrates what Northern Ireland means to them.

The idea behind the competition is that as many people as possible across the province go out on Saturday and take a photograph of somewhere that is important to them.

It can involve people or pets, be an action shot, or just be a beautiful scenic photograph.

Participants are in with a chance to win a fabulous family hotel or self-catering break in Northern Ireland, courtesy of the NITB.

As well as a chance to win a short staycation break, the top 100 photos will be included in a special commemorative supplement to be published in September.

Entries will be split into three categories – one for primary school children, one for secondary school children, and a third category for everyone else.

Entrants should clearly mark their age and category when submitting their entry.

All photographs should be sent via email to with a short note explaining the content of the picture and what makes it so special.
