Win a Canon EOS 60D kit, EOS M or PowerShot SX500 IS

4th January 2013 – Extension of the You Connect Christmas photo-competition.

Due to unforeseen technical issues you can now enter the competition from the 24th of December 2012 to the 20th of January 2013 11pm CET, same T&Cs apply.

Every month, the Gallery brings you inspiring images taken by members of the You Connect community. This month is rather special; as well as seeing your photo on display, you could also win one of three fantastic Canon cameras as a prize.

Enter your photos in the new-look You Connect Gallery this month and you could win a Canon EOS 60D.

The theme for the competition is 'See the light'. This could mean incredible skies, shots using flash creatively or a scene that has been lit dramatically. Interpret the theme; making sure that light is a critical element of all images you upload. Show us how you've been inspired by light.

As well as the opportunity to show your photo in next month's You Connect Gallery, there is an added incentive. The best three pictures chosen by a jury made up of the You Connect team and Canon's product experts will win one of three great Canon cameras. First prize is an EOS 60D and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II, with runners up winning an EOS M and EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM or PowerShot SX500 IS. There are also 10 limited edition EOS 25th anniversary camera straps to be given away.


So get shooting or go through your photos and select the most striking ones that you think match the theme of 'See the light'. Have a look at the Tutorial from last year's competition to understand more about what will impress the jury.

Upload your photos to the Gallery ; your image could be one of the 30 finalists displayed in next month's Gallery from which we will select the 3 winners. Even if your picture doesn’t win or isn’t selected for the Gallery, remember that we also display them within the Photography Tutorials.

The competition runs until 8th January 2013. In January's You Connect Gallery we will show the 30 finalists, with the 3 winners being announced in February.
