Do you love to take photos of beautiful places you visit, only to leave them languishing in a remote corner of your hard drive when you get home? Here is a chance to dust them off and share them with the rest of the world.

Photo sharing service Pikeo together with Lonely Planet are holding a competition for photos of 4 cities: Paris, London, Barcelona and Istanbul.

The winning photo in each category will be used on the cover of a Lonely Planet Encounters City Guide. Other prizes include a trip to India, Nairobi, Morocco or Russia, Lonely Planet guides and Pikeo photo books.

The competition is open to anyone (from any country) who signs up for a Pikeo account. More details here. It’s open until September 8th so get shooting!
