The beautiful hot weather and England doing great in the football have given us two big reasons to be happy lately.

And here are 29 more small reasons to have a smile on your face thanks to the News Shopper Camera Club.

Our theme for June was ‘photos to make people smile’ as we asked our photographers to share feel-good images showing some of life's happy, funny, silly or slightly rude moments,

We had plenty of cheerful photos submitted to our group on Facebook but the winning photo was of a smiling dog in Oxleas Woods taken by Emma Whipple from Lewisham.

Emma wins our £50 monthly prize.

Browse through the gallery above to see the rest of the smile-worthy snaps that were shortlisted.
