We're giving you one extra week to send in submissions for our 10th annual photo contest. This year's first-place winner will receive a Canon PowerShot A1100IS (or equivalent) digital camera.

As always, we want gritty as well as pretty. The topic of travel is broad, so have some fun with it: Experiment with lighting, angles, subjects and composition. Start shooting . . . and surprise us.

One entry per person. Photo must have been taken in 2008-09. Send e-mail entries to Photos should be JPEG or TIFF attachments, between 1MB and 10MB in size. Include caption information and when the photo was taken, plus your name, address and phone number, and put the photo's topic (e.g., "Scotland rainbow") in the subject line.

If sending by conventional mail, attach a sticker or notecard with your name, contact info and a detailed caption to the back of the photo (please do not send loose sheets of paper). Photos, which are nonreturnable, may be color or black-and-white, and in print form. Send prints to The Washington Post Travel Section Photo Contest, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.

Entries must be received by July 27. Photos become the property of The Washington Post, which may edit, publish, distribute and republish them in any form without compensation. The winner, to be determined by the Travel staff and photography professionals, receives a digital camera. Post employees and their immediate families are not eligible. Please do not call to ask if we have received your entry. The winning photos will be published in August.
