Have you seen spring out there? We'd like to see proof of it.

A new season is upon us, and it's time for the Mail Tribune's spring photo contest for readers.

Here's how it works: We'll collect readers' photos showing signs of the new season through Wednesday, when we'll name the photos we think best depict spring in the Rogue Valley. The winner will receive a $30 gift card from the Grange Co-op; the runner-up will get $20.

We have just a few rules: The photographer or a parent must submit the photo. The photo must have been taken in 2008 in the Rogue Valley. Photo submissions must be in jpeg formats and must be accompanied by an e-mail address and a daytime phone number (we won't publish that).

Here's where to send your photos; let's bring on spring.
