The Canberra Times' Summer Photo Competition

Capturing the light of endless summer

The Canberra Times' Summer Photo Competition continues to attract sensational seasonal images from around the ACT and further afield.

Jennifer Minns captured storm clouds menacing a pre-Christmas first grade cricket match during tea break at Stirling Oval.

Noah Ross-Grundmann, aged 11, of St Kilda in Melbourne, captured a panoramic view of the sun-scorched countryside from the top of Mt Painter.

"We walked up there on Boxing Day 2012 and it was a hot day and I think this shot captures a rural Canberra in summer," Noah wrote.

An atmospheric mood at Bawley Point on the south coast caught the eye of Timothy Fulton of Kambah, while Jane Preston photographed her ''best friend'' Petra enjoying a cooling swim in the river.

Gungahlin's Alan Kerlin gave us his shot of a sunset over the historic village of Gundaroo and Reece Barnes caught a different view of Commonwealth Avenue Bridge as the city cooled down after sunset.


The competition gives aspiring photographers the chance to have their favourite shots published; the winning entry receives $500, second prize $300, and third $200.

For your opportunity to win, all you have to do is snap one of those magic summer moments and send it to The Canberra Times. A selection of the entries will be published in the newspaper and on throughout the summer holidays.

Entrants must send their images, attached as JPEG files, to photocomp@canberratimes.

The photographs must be a minimum of 150Kb and a maximum of 1Mb.

There is a maximum limit of three photos per person, and entrants should include their name, address, phone number and a brief description of their shots.

The competition closes at 4pm on January 20.
