Entries for the Christmas lights competition, run by Rotary and The Times, close on Saturday night, December 12.

The competition is part of the Rotary Festival of Christmas, and huge prizes are up for grabs thanks to competition sponsor Harcourts, with $500 for first place, $300 for second, and $200 for third.

To enter the people's choice competition, submit a photo of the Christmas lights display and address to victortimes@austcommunitymedia.com.au before at 11.59pm on December 12.

A gallery of all the entries will be uploaded to The Times' website on Sunday, December 13, where people will be able to vote for their favourite display before voting closes on Wednesday morning, December 16.

The winner will be announced in the December 17 edition of The Times.

Another part of the Rotary Festival of Christmas is the Christmas Tree Decorating competition, which will run from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday, December 12 at Warland Reserve, Victor Harbor.

There are three categories - traditional, Australian, and innovative - and there are prizes for each section.
