The competition organisers say they are looking for the very worst holiday photographs imaginable, from mis-timed shots of children coming off water slides to images ruined by shadows

Images can be submitted on another woeful holiday photographer’s behalf, though the competition does require the photographer’s permission.

Steve Barnes from said, ‘We’ve all taken bad holiday photos at some point and whilst the odd one or two can be forgiven, if it’s the whole lot then you’re left without any memories of your break.’

In an effort to help the unlucky winner on to better things, first prize for the competition is a Samsung WB250F compact camera.

A few entries for the competition have already started coming in. Take a look below for a quick preview:
