Hewlett Packard (HP) printers are up for grabs ? plus the chance to be published in a Lonely Planet guide ? in a new travel photo competition.

Backed by the Guardian newspaper the contest is open to residents of the UK or Republic of Ireland aged 18 or over.

Organisers are after images that ?capture the spirit of modern Australia?.

The winner?s pic will be used in the next issue of Lonely Planet Australia, due to be published in November 2007.

He or she will also win an HP Photosmart Pro B9180 photo printer, while the nine runners-up will bag an HP Photosmart C4180.
