Here’s just a sample of the many we’ve been sent, set out here in the 10 categories for which we’re offering great prizes.

Friends of RCUK, including Balint Hamvas, Dromarti, Endura, Hammer Sports, Human Race, Muc Off, Prendas Cyclismo, Southern Sportive, Velopress, and Vulpine have each put forward a superb prize.

We’ll be closing the competition on Friday December 21, and announcing the winners on Monday December 24, giving 10 lucky readers another Christmas gift.

There’s still plenty of time to get your entries in, if you haven’t already. Take a look at the categories below, and email your images, one per category, and no larger than 5mb, to [email protected], with Photo Competition and the category in the subject field.
