More shutterbugs to snap to it

The annual ``scavenger hunt'' competition that sees students photograph 20 images of different subjects, is in its seventh year and may lead to more entries than ever, according to co-ordinator Paul Snell.

Mr Snell, Launceston Church Grammar School's head of visual art, said for the first time they were taking entries in two categories _ years 9 and 10, and years 11 and 12.

He said the decision to offer two categories in the competition would give younger students who may have been intimidated by competing against year 11s and 12s a fairer playing field.

``We've had a year 9 student get a third place in the past but it's pretty rare, so this will just make it a bit more fair for the younger students,'' Mr Snell said.

He said he was expecting between 150 to 200 entries from around the state from schools getting involved as a part of their course work or just individual students.

Some of the subjects for this year's competition include bright, texture, traffic, the colour purple and frozen.

Mr Snell said it was up to students to take the subjects either literally or be as abstract and creative as possible.

Students were also able to photo-shopping their images as little or much as they liked, he said.

Entries close on July 4. For more information and to register visit,
