Anthea Holloway’s winning photo of Deer Lakes, Colorado

The results are in - and we can finally reveal the winner of our summer-long photo competition in association with legendary camera maker Leica.

After narrowing down the hundreds of entries to 12 finalists, we put it out to public vote. You responded in your droves, and the result was a clear win for Anthea Holloway from Dorset. Her picture of Deer Lakes Campground, taken on holiday with her husband in Colorado's Rocky Mountains in September, earned her a fabulous Leica V-Lux 20 camera and leather case, worth £565.

However, the judges also decided to make a special award for the picture which they felt best captured the summer holiday spirit of the competition. That went to Steve Mayor, from Bolton, for his engaging picture of his son splashing in the sea off Cadiz, Spain. He wins an iRiver S100 MP4 player worth £129.99.

Just to show that you don't need top-of-the-range, professional photography equipment to take good pictures, Steve took his using a Sony camcorder while Anthea snapped her prize photo using a little Samsung point-and-shoot camera - now swapped for her new Leica, of course
