Send us your pictures taken on Saturday, July 21, 2018.

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 cooling 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 all the best photos on our website at and in the News Guardian newspaper.

The winner will also 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.

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.

To take part in One Summer’s Day, email your picture to [email protected] Include your full name, address and daytime contact number, plus a brief description of what and who is in your picture and the time it was taken. All digital images must be high resolution and 1MB or above in size. Remember, only photos taken on Saturday, July 21, will be considered.
