2017 Tasmania in Focus photo competition: winter

The competition

Tasmania in Focus is a competition that calls on the community to enter photos showcasing our glorious, rugged state. 

Photos are not confined to landscape shots; we also want to see the people who live, work and visit the Apple Isle. 

You don’t need fancy equipment to enter but a good eye and great timing will be handy. ​The Examiner is searching for the best winter photos snapped in Tasmania by amateur photographers. 

Two of The Examiner’s senior photographers, Phillip Biggs and Scott Gelston, have shared tips on taking photos during winter.
