Got a camera? Start snapping!
Digital cameras mean that photography is easy and cheap. You can just snap away and choose the best shot. Just about everyone has a digital camera now. If you don't have one yourself, ask your parents if you can use theirs. take a REALLY good eco-shot, you have to get down and really observe what makes nature tick.

We're sure you could take a photo like this...
If you can take a good photo and love nature, then get your camera out and start snapping as we've some great prizes to win.

This is a great little website to give you some tips on photography:

How about some interesting weather?...
All you have to do is take a photo and email it to us...easy! Make sure you follow the rules below:

The photo can be of:
(a) An animal, insect or plant - test out your macro function (allows you to take shots up close). This allows us to see detail that we don't often take the time to look at.
(b) A landscape (a wide shot of a natural environment) Show us an interesting rock formation, beautiful hills or some spectacular clouds.
(c) Eco - show us something interesting to do with the environment; pollution, recycling, solar panels, irrigation systems

Be creative, don't worry if your photo doesn't quite fit into one of the above categories..just send us what you think is relevent and interesting.

1. The photo must be no more than 150 pixels and not bigger than 10cm in size. Photos with a large file size may have to be deleted.
2. On the email, give your: Name, Age, Address, email address and a description of your photo (so we know what we're looking at)
3. There are two age categories (so we won't be judging young kids against older teens) and the maximum age is 18 years old.
