Love those images on the cover of Lonely Planet guides? Fancy yourself a great photographer?

Then check out the details of this contest:

Lonely Planet, and Pikeo
(http://www.pikeo.com), a new photo-sharing website, are inviting travellers to submit their most unique and inspiring pictures of London, Paris, Barcelona and Istanbul.

The four winners–one for each city– will have their picture preserved for posterity on the cover of a Lonely Planet city guide. They’ll also get some great exposure at a London gallery exhibit.

And, oh, by the way: they’ll win a free trip to one of four destinations: India, Russia, Morocco or Kenya.

The competition is open to photographers from the UK, France, Spain, the USA and Canada, and the deadline is September 8.
