photo comp tourism australia

Just read about this photo comp in the weekend australian, I am sure there are lots of photo comps but I dont know much about them, but these prizes seem pretty decent.
I immediately thought of the many excellent shutterbugs amongst the members of this fine forum

EDIT: Just realised you got to have people in the shots LOL - should of read it bettter

Photos must show people enjoying a holiday experience in Australia; the only stipulation is they should not appear "posed" in front of the camera.
Sounds fair, i'm sure I can take a holiday down at the beach!

Thanks for the heads-up Kearn, I love a challenge!

Great prizes, too.

I'm in it! I'll look through some old shots from the holidays, or I'll go take a holiday to the beach next week

Some of the rules:
Quote:
There are four entry categories (1) Nature (2) Beaches (3) Outback and (4) Cities.
Entrants must submit a photograph that they have taken in Australia and show people engaging in an experience that can be had on holidays in Australia.
Entrants must indicate the category that they would like their photograph entered into.
Entrants with more than one category indicated on the one entry will be withdrawn.
Entrants may submit multiple separate entries but can only win one category.
Photographs will not be returned. No correspondence or negotiation will be entered into on this subject.
Entry photographs are not to have been published in any other media anywhere in the world.
and for digital entries:

Quote:
Preferred image size and format for submitted photos is 640 x 480 pixel JPEG.

Images over 2 MB WILL NOT be accepted. Only JPEG images will be accepted
Good stuff.

Mike , it was particularly your very nice recent 'cities' and 'beaches' series type shots that made me think of mentioning it here
and Good Luck :-))
(I might have to make an effort and find a shot somewhere too - they could of had the competition in summer and made it a bit easier spose the northern states will romp in the beach category?)

seeing its been cloudy and wintery for so long now here in adders, and while on the subject of touristy stuff I was looking thru some holiday snaps (didnt take many unfortunately) from early this year taken from Robe and Beachport on beautiful S/E coast SOUTH AUSTRALIA (hehe sorry about emphasis vics, but its still ours even if you seem to own most of it now), usually called the Limestone Coast.
In the distance, in the shot with my missus taking a shot of her own is empty 90 mile!! beach (exept for the usual armies of 4WDers?) - go a bit further nw and your in the coorong.
my point is, is its a bit damn hard to get people in our beach shots as they are mostly deserted
drool on UK beach lovers

hmm finding entries for this comp is hard.

Most of my landscape photos don't have people in them, or if they do, they're my family and they're posing!

Along with the photo, they'll need to provide 150 words describing what inspired them to take the shot and the experience they were trying to capture. Submissions should include details of exactly where and when the shot was taken and how the location was reached.

Good luck guys.

I used to work in the magazine production biz and I can honestly say the standard of some of the portrait/landscape etc pix being posted at this forum are of a very, very high standard and very "artistic".

So definitely get 'em in...

Oh ... look!!!! Mike's nearly at 8000
