How many of you guys have sent pics in to the Herald's Summer fun photo comp?

Up for grabs is a 350d + 18-55... It would make a nice backup to my 300d.
Im sending off my entrys tonight - they close on friday!

Keep an eye out for my pics - i dont always get to the paper each day, and I'd be gutted if I missed them in print.

a nice backup to 300D? Why wouldn't you make the 300D your back up?

I'm guessing this is a newspaper?

The 350 is too small for my hands, and I would have to buy a grip for it.
I use a 300d with grip and am happy with its size / weight.

Yes, its our national news paper. : http://www.nzherald.co​.nz/ (external link)

I won't bother. A stupid BAD photo wins everyyear, coz it's got a cute child in it. If they actually took true artisitic merit and photographic capabilities, someone else should win.

Tim - check the back page of your herald, front section.

Wazza - This year my entrys feature a cute child sitting on the front of a longboard while my mate surfs it in on a big wave. The poor child got nailed by 4 big waves while trying to get that shot lol.

I was going to say, nzherald.co.nz and upload a file...
Just remove the exif, so they don't feel guilty giving the winning prize to a 20D user. :lol:

That is why the shots I entered had pictures of cute children in them :p

Know you target audience!

Got one published on Monday on the Waikato Times, it fitted the above formula!

Nah, most of their photographers used to shoot Noink, not sure what they use now. That is why there is some much second hand Noink stuff at Auckland Camera (or so they have told me). I thought it was because there was no demand for it :D

The Herald isn't actualy a National Paper it just likes to think it is, apprently its distribution department is as ignorant as its editorial department. Its only Common North of the Bombays, but is read in numbers as far south as Taupo.

Tim would get the Dominion, which IMO is a far better read.

I thought of entering this comp, but Iv been checking the entrys so far in the back page, and I simply don't have enough cute kids or animals to use as subjects.
But I think if you took a photo of a cute kid playing with a cute animal while semi naked, at the beach in the water, and it was badly framed and composed you might stand a chance of winning :)

sad but true. Didn't even bother with this one. I did send an entry in for the C4 photo comp "weather is here wish you were beautiful"
