We would like to thank Canon South Africa for their support from the start. Thank you for providing amazing prizes we all wish we had won.
We want to see your track and field images that tell the story of track and field disciplines. Show the athletes in action, the details, try motion blur, long lens, wide angles – the only limit is your imagination. The winning image will receive a Powershot Zoom from Canon South Africa.
To celebrate #womensmonth, the photo competition theme is “The epic, powerful and beautiful women in your life”.

This is a theme that anyone can enter regardless of your photography skills and equipment, we are looking for creativity and thinking outside the box. You don’t need a “great white” lens or a sooper dooper macro lens, this is just creativity and experimentation. Your images do not need to be taken with a mirrorless camera, remember we are celebrating mirrorless with these images, so you can either go for a reflection (I know, it’s mirrorless… Irony.) by using a water puddle, mirrors, shop windows, even your phone’s screen as a reflective element to capture a reflection or you can go pure mirrorless – shoot a portrait of someone who got ready for work without using a mirror 🙂
Upload your out-of-this-world, sooper dooper mirrorless images and you could win a Canon RF 50mm 1.8 STM lens sponsored by Canon South Africa.
I am sure many of you have been waiting for the wildlife theme so now is your chance to show us your most amazing images. We want impact, we want personality, we want images that jump off the screen. The best wildlife image for the month will win you the amazing Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM lens sponsored by Canon South Africa.
Please note that the entry requirements have been updated, so you need to make sure you have read and understood them.
Macro photography refers to extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects where they are depicted in the image as greater than life size. To achieve the best results in macro photography, it is important to use the smallest lens aperture to gain optimum image sharpness and depth of field. To shoot macro, you need a macro lens which is a lens that lets you shoot at least at a 1:1 ratio. In other words, if you shoot a picture of a jumping spider, the resulting image will be the size of a jumping spider or larger. The great thing about macro photography is you have to experiment, explore and find inspiration from the act of doing, because it gives you a different way of seeing. We cannot wait to see the world through your lens, so wow us with your macro photography and you can win a Canon EF 100mm 2.8 USM Macro lens sponsored by Canon South Africa.
The term “fine art photography” has no universally agreed meaning or definition. Rather, it refers to an imprecise category of photographs, created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer. Fine-art photography is photography created in line with the vision of the photographer as artist, using photography as a medium for creative expression. The goal of fine-art photography is to express an idea, a message, or an emotion. This stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally representing objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer.
So now the you have your brief, go out and shoot some amazing fine art photography and enter your images here.
It’s easy to think of architectural photography simply as the photography of buildings, but there’s more to it than that. Architectural photography is about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer’s eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.
Architectural photographers require additional skills and techniques to capture the beauty of buildings, from the use of perspective control to capture complete spaces to knowing where and when to find the shots.
