Newsport Photographic Competition

New rules for November:

Newsport is changing they way we do themes for the Best Photo Competition for November.

November will have both an 'Open' category, in which photos dealing with any subject matter can be submitted, and a 'Theme' category, in which photos following a theme can be submitted to as in previous months. 

A 'Best Open' prize will be awarded for the highest-voted Open photo and "Best Themed' will be awarded for the highest-voted Themed photo. 

The Newsport Photo Competition Panel will also select a Panel Winner and Panel Runner-up from the combined 'Open and

Themed' pools, in addition to an Editor's Mention for a fifth photo.

Please send all submissions and questions to competitions@thenewsport.com.au and please indicate in your email which category (Open or Themed) you are submitting your photo to. 

November's Theme is "All Creatures Great and Small" - shots should include one or more animals. This can include family pets, wild creatures and even coral (which is part of the Animal Kingdom). 

Happy snapping!

November Entries

Submissions for November will either be entered into the 'Open' category or the 'Themed' category, which this month is 'All Creatures Great and Small'.
