The Border Mail summer photo competition

Scorching sunshine to thunderous storms and raging bushfires, a summer on the Border has a plethora of options for budding photographers to test their skills.

The Border Mail’s summer photo competition is an opportunity for amateur snappers in the region to share their best seasonal images, have the chance to see their photos published and a one-hour photo workshop with a staff photographer.

The Border Mail editor Niall Boyle said the Barnawartha bushfires were a perfect example of readers’ submissions complementing rolling online updates.

“We were inundated with scores of fantastic images which helped further enhance our audience’s understanding of a potentially devastating natural disaster as it unfolded,” he said.

To enter, send a maximum of three photos to newsroom@bordermail.com.au as attached JPEG files. Include your name, address, phone number, photo title, a description of the photo and the date it was taken.

Photos must be at least 1mb (megabyte) and not more than three megabytes in size.

The competition closes on February 19 2016.
