UPDATED, Oct. 16: We have a winner!
ORIGINAL STORY: There is arguably no better time to live in New England than when foliage is at its peak.
We're just about there: so get out your cameras.
In our inaugural Picture of the Week contest, we are inviting readers to upload the best photos they've taken of fall foliage.
The contest, which starts today and continues through the year with 12 different topics, allows eligible participants the chance to win a $25 gift card to a local business.
We’ll be taking photo submissions each week from 5 a.m. Wednesday until 6 p.m. the following Monday. The winner, chosen by Patch editors, will be announced on Tuesday.
Photos of fall foliage must be uploaded by 6 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, Oct. 15. You may enter as many photos as you'd like. If you like a particular photo, voice your support for it in the comments.
Eligibility is limited to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.
To upload your photo, just sign in to Patch, click the "Upload Photos and Videos" button on this article, choose a photo you'd like to submit, add a caption, and save.

We can't wait to see your pictures!
