Funday Times Nature Odyssey Photographic Competition

Kids, welcome to the Funday Times/Nature Odyssey Kids photographic competition. This competition is designed for all budding nature photographers of 14 years and under to sharpen their skills in photographing the various types of little animals found in your back garden.

The competition will run through for six months with a theme given each month on which you need to make photographs and send them to the paper. The picture size should be a minimum of 6 x 4 inches and the subject needs to be strictly related to the monthly themes given.

The topic for January is 'Birds on a bird bath'.

I am sure you see many birds in your garden. You first need to set up a bird bath in your garden to attract the birds. You will find it interesting to watch while the birds fly over to your bird bath for drinking and bathing. Slowly approach the birds on your bird bath very carefully without scaring them away. Make great photos and send them to the Funday Times competition.

Aunty Tania from Nature Odyssey will collect all the pictures and the judging will take place immediately at the end of each month, and a Valuable Coffee table Book on Yala National Park will be given to the winner – autographed by the authors.

The competition will enter its grand finale in six months where the six monthly winners will compete for the Grand Prize of a Digital Camera.

Along the way, the Uncles and Aunties of Nature Odyssey will help you on your photography.

For further inquiries, please contact Aunty Tania on e.mail:

Your photographic inquiries can be addressed to Uncle Chitral on e.mail:

So C'mon kids... take those cameras and hit the garden...

This competition is also open to our internet readers. Your photos could be sent by email to the addresses given.
