Black Press amateur photo contest

Are you a budding photographer? Do you see the world from your own unique perspective? If the answer is yes, then Black Press invites you to take "Your Best Shot."

The new Your Best Shot contest is open to amateur photographers from across the province. Photographers are encouraged to send in their favourite photos from the past 12 months.

Whether it's an action-packed sports shot, a colourful scenic landscape or an amazing portrait, budding photographers are encouraged to send it in.

Contestants can submit up to five of their favourite photos for a chance to win some spectacular prizes.

The contest, which is being presented by Black Press, London Drugs and the Abbotsford International Airshow, is open now and runs until July 14.

All photos will be judged by a panel of experts on subject, composition, impact and other criteria.

"We are looking for photographers that have an ability to capture the moment," said Barry Gerding, managing editor of the Capital News.

"We know there is lots of talent out there, we just need to give them the opportunity to shine."

Finalists will receive full VIP access to the Abbotsford International Airshow with preferred viewing to take photos of all the action. They will also compete for more than $2,000 in prizes and the chance to be named the Next Generation Amateur Photographer of the Year.
