Picturing the next generation

For budding photographers aged 18 or under, this competition offers a chance to win a digital camera.

As part of the new BBC season called Generation Next, we asked you to send in pictures illustrating how you spent your leisure time.

Whether it was playing sport, music or just hanging around with your friends, we encouraged you to grab your camera and take a snap.

The deadline for entries has now passed.

The 12 best pictures from each age group will now be selected by our picture desk and will be displayed in a gallery on the BBC News website on Wednesday 6 December.

Readers will then have 48 hours in which to vote for their favourite.

Two categories

There are two sets of prizes - one for anyone aged 13 or under and another for 14 to 18-year-olds (age as of 30 November, 2006) - with the maximum number of images per person set at four.

Each of the winners chosen by our readers will win a Nikon D50 SLR camera; the two runners-up will win a Nikon S9 Coolpix camera.

By entering, entrants will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these rules. This competition is organised by the BBC as part of Generation Next output.
