Get snapping!

And whether it’s heading out for a family picnic, enjoying a leisurely stroll at a favourite beauty spot, taking to the water or simply unwinding with a cool drink or an ice cream in the garden we want to capture on camera what sums up the perfect summer’s day for our readers.

So we have chosen this Saturday, July 21, as our One Summer’s Day - and all we are asking is for the sun to shine and for you to send us a snap of what you are up to.

We will feature the best photos on our website wigantoday.net and a selection in the Observer. And the best one will then be put up against One Summer’s Day pictures taken by readers of our sister titles across our Johnston Press publishing group to find a national winner!

And you don’t need to be a professional photographer, as long as your shot reflects your day of fun in the sun it will be considered for the prize-winning top spot.

Wigan Observer Editor Janet Wilson said: ‘We’ve had a sizzling start to July and are looking forward to many more sunny days to come. We want you to capture what makes a brilliant summer’s day and are looking for you to capture that perfect moment. Look for a splash of colour, look for expression or fun - look for anything that sums up your summer’s day.”

Email pictures to [email protected] or post them on our Facebook page. Include your full name, address and daytime contact number, plus a brief description of what and who is in your picture and the time taken. All images must be high resolution and 1MB or above. Only photos taken on Saturday will be considered.
