WHETHER your summer days consist of long sunset strolls, lazing at the beach or fun in the backyard, there's always time for a photo.

Share your best pictures with us and you could win one of three Olympus digital cameras from Domayne, Kotara.

The Herald Summer Photo Competition is our annual search for the Hunter's best backyard photographer.

All you have to do is capture a "summer moment" - the family frolicking at the beach, a glorious sunset, pet shenanigans, a loved one's portrait or a sports shot - and send it in. The best photo wins an Olympus Pen Mini digital camera, with a recommended retail price of $449, plus 1000 6x4 prints, valued at $150. Second prize is an Olympus TG-820 10 metre waterproof camera and third, an Olympus TG-320 3 metre waterproof camera.

A selection of entries will be published in the paper and online.


Entries must include your name, address, phone number, photo title, brief description of the photo and the date it was taken. Photos must be a minimum of 150Kb and a maximum of 1Mb.

The competition closes on January 25. Email a maximum of three photos as jpeg attachments to
