Smile for the camera

FANCY yourself as a top photographer? Eastwood park theatre has just the thing, as it holds a photomarathon later this month.

The competition takes place on Saturday, October 20, and anyone is welcome to enter using either a camera, smart phone or tablet.

Show up at 10am and you will receive your first topic – then each hour, a new topic will be released through social media or text message until each entrant has gathered six of their best shots.

Photos have to be emailed in before midnight, and entries will then be judged by professional photographers Martin Shields, Colin Mearns and Elaine Livingstone.

An award ceremony will take place on November 2, where the top three will be presented with prizes, including a day of shadowing one of the judges in action and a photography masterclass.

To enter, email a registration request to by Monday (October 15).
