It’s time for the Redlands’ budding David Attenboroughs to get snapping with the annual IndigiScapes digital photographic competition opening on 1 November.
The popular focus on our wild Redlands offers cash prizes in a range of categories.
“The amazing wildlife of the Redlands offers potential for that really special photo, as Jun Lembumfacil’s winning snap last year of a well-camouflaged leaf-eating grasshopper showed,’’ Redland City Council environment spokesman Cr Paul Gleeson said.
“There are individual sections for wildlife in the City’s parks and reserves, from birds and mammals to creatures like frogs, insects and reptiles.
“Or you might like to specialise in the wildlife in your own backyard, which has its own categories.
“There’s also a category for native plants and a junior category for photographers aged 14 years and under.
“There’s $100 up for grabs for each of the open categories, with $500 for the best overall photo in that group, as well as $200 for the winning junior.’’
Entries close at 4pm on Sunday 24 November, with judging and the announcement of winners on Friday 29 November.
The photographs will then go on exhibition from 1-20 December.
All entries must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries must be no larger than 10mb and should include your name, address, telephone number and which category your photo is to be entered.
Your photo can be entered in one category only.
