The first signs of Christmas appeared in the shops in September, but now December is here and it really is time to decorate the tree and reach for the Quality Street. For many of us, Christmas means some time away from work, a chance to relax, watch a bit of TV and overindulge. But it’s also a great time for photography, so we’ve made the theme for the December round of our monthly photograph competition Christmas.
We want to see what Christmas means to you, whether it’s frosty scenery, festive lights, sumptuous grub or cheesy decorations.
How to enter
You can enter via Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. You just need to tag us @camerajabber and include this month’s #tag, #christmasjabber.
Our competition runs until the end of the year with each month having a different theme. The Christmas theme will run until January when we’ll pick a winner from the December entries and award the prize of a Samsung 128GB EVO Plus microSD with SD adaptor memory card worth £78.99.

As this is the last month of the year, next month we’ll also pick our favourite image from each of the monthly winners. The winning photographer will receive a 250GB Samsung SSD T5 portable storage unit worth £125.49.
We’ll announce the winner of our November round (Night Skies and Fireworks) in the next few days.
About the prizes
The Samsung 128GB EVO Plus microSD card is a UHS-I U3 Class 10 memory card and it comes with an SD card adapter. It’s also 4K compatible and suited for use in cameras and other devices that accept either a microSD or an SD card. Backed by Samsung’s 4-proof protection these cards are ultra reliable and are water, temperature, X-ray and magnetic proof making them the perfect partner for an action cam like a GoPro Hero7 Black, a mirrorless camera like the Fuji X-E3 or a DSLR like the Nikon D3400 – and a host of others.
Measuring just 74 x 57.3 x 10.5 mm (3.0 x 2.3 x 0.4 in), the 250GB Portable Samsung T5 is an excellent storage device for photographers on the move. And thanks to V-NAND technology and a USB 3.1 Gen interface it has fast transfer times so you don’t have to wait long for your images to copy across. It’s also compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Android*, so you can use it to back-up your data and photos from your PC, phone or laptop.

* Windows 7 or higher, Mac OS X Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra (versions 10.9 or higher), Android 4.4 (KitKat) or higher.
