Look outside your window at the Oklahoma landscape. What will your view look like in 10 ... 15 ... no, 20 years? In 2033, what will the Oklahoma City metro area be like?

This year's Outlook edition asks that question to local newsmakers, celebrities and native sons and daughters.

But we also wonder, what do readers think? You can tell us through photos and maybe win a great camera!

On your camera or smartphone, take a photo that creatively visualizes your idea of the Oklahoma City metro 20 years from now. Bedford Camera & Video, on N May Avenue in Oklahoma City, will give away a grand prize and four runners-up prizes.

2) Upload your photo to Instagram or Twitter.

3) Tag your photo #okc20yearslater.

4) A panel of judges will pick the best five photos and post them on The best photos will be in the running for our grand prize. Winners will be announced in the April 28 Outlook edition in The Oklahoman.

The incredible prizes:

Grand prize: A Sony Alpha 55 Digital SLR, with 18 to 55 mm zoom lens, a tripod and tripod case, two SD memory cards and in-store training. Prize package retails for more than $1,000.
