Are you a budding David Bailey? Do your children get very snap happy when on holiday? Ever wanted to see your photographs in print or online? If the answer to any – or all! – of these is yes, our Family Photo Competition is for you.

We’re looking for inspiring shots of families having fun on our adventures. The people who take our favourite photographs will win vouchers towards their next Explore holiday, plus, of course, the priceless accolade of appearing in our Family Adventures brochure.

The person taking our favourite photograph will receive £250 in vouchers. There are also two runners-up prizes of vouchers worth £100. Photos entered can be taken by anyone in your family and there is no limit to the number of photos you can enter. So pass the cameras round the family and get snapping!

Entering is simple:
1. Head out on your Explore tour and take some great photos, or have a look back through pictures you've taken on previous Explore adventures.
2. Pick your favourites, making sure they include people, and email them in high resolution (minimum 1mb in size and jpeg format) to (this email address can only receive emails up to 10mb so if you want to send a few pictures you may need to do so over a couple of emails)
