wcgfxwcgfxAlmost every phone is kitted out with a camera these days, but how well do they play? Can a Nokia take a more striking snap than a Motorola? Does a Sony Ericsson punt a better picture than an LG? Is Samsung a player? We'd like you to help us find out.

Every day throughout the remainder of the FIFA World Cup 2006 tournament, starting Monday, 26 June 2006 we'll run what we think is the best World Cup-related picture taken on any camera phone and emailed in by Reg Hardware readers the day before.

The only rules are that shots have to be taken on a phone and they must be correctly emailed to the address below. You also need to tell us where and when the pic was taken, by whom and - crucially - on what kind of handset.

You'd don't have to attend a match to take part - they can be in the pub, in your back garden, anywhere - but photos snapped at the event will score extra points. So will more amusing shots, and those that get right into the World Cup spirit. Extra points can be gained for photos with a Register connection.

As ever, the editor's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into, but we'll offer a prize to anyone whose picture is shown, with a grand prize, yet to be determined, for the best pic of the contest - so make sure you tell us how to get in touch. If we don't think the pics are up to scratch, we reserve the right not publish any on a given day. Either way, we'll collate all the shots and name the best - and worst - camera phones at the end of the event, based on your pics.

World Cup 2006 camera phone contest pictures must be emailed to competitions@theregister.co.uk with "world cup" in the subject line. The compo closes at midnight BST, 9 July 2006.

That's it, team... get shooting...
