2013/03/01: Entries are now closed for this competition

Yongnuo YN-568EXToday we launch our first community competition, with a brilliant prize up for grabs. Enter your photographs and you could walk away with a cutting-edge E-TTL speedlite from Yongnuo, normally worth €209!

Our reviewer Mark highly recommended the Yongnuo Speedlite YN568EX (pictured) in his recent hands-on product test, praising its “great feature set” and advanced wireless capabilities for both Canon & Nikon.

Thanks to French distributor Lovinpix, we will be giving away one of these flashes (a Canon model) to the photographer behind the winning image.

The theme of this competition is water.

How to enter

Join our Google+ community at and share your images with the hash tag #watercomp.

You can link your photographs with the theme however you like. Entries could be anything from abstract images of water droplets (ice counts too!), intense swimming action shots, a portrait in the rain/snow or your own alternative interpretation. Here are some examples for inspiration:

Drops On Bright Orange Flower

Endless love

Freediving: dynamic without fins

In the caption of your image, or a comment underneath it, share a little bit of information about it, including where the light comes from. This could be any source: your own studio set-up, the midday sun or the glow from a shop window; there are no restrictions on how you light your photo or what sort of camera you use to take it!

The deadline is 12:00 GMT on 1st March 2013. The winner will be selected by a panel of Lighting Rumours staff judges. The competition is open to all our readers across the world.

Happy snapping and good luck!
