Getting the coastline in the picture in photo competition

CALLING all Tweed Coast photographers, the inaugural Tweed Coast Rotary Photography competition is taking entries from this Thursday August 1st , judging will kick off on September 1.

Rotary club president Merridie Fury is excited about seeing the first digital entries come through to the club's email.

"We are excited about the competition, it is a Coastal themed competition, so we are looking for beachscapes and coastal related images," Mrs Fury said.

Owner of Coastal Visions Photography in Cabarita, Paget Thomson is a busy photographer and shop owner but was more than happy to judge entries for the first year of competition and is certain there will be some great entries from the local photographic talent.

"It is going to be good to see the talent on the Tweed Coast, we are going to have an under 16's division and an open division which will keep me busy," Mr Thomson said.

At this stage the club will be charging three dollars per entry which should encourage plenty of interest.

Images must be shot on the Tweed, with a clear coastal theme and there will not be a time frame for when images were shot, the club is asking entrants to clearly name each entry they submit as well.

Anyone Is eligible to enter and can do so via the clubs website tweedcoastrotary.org
