Snap Some Wood and Win Photography Competition

iPad © Chris Philpot

'SNAP SOME WOOD' HAS NOW CLOSED FOR ENTRIES.  To vote for your favourite, visit the Make It Wood Facebook page and 'like' the photo.   You have until the end of January to vote.

Wood has been used to build homes and furniture, to support infrastructure like bridges and railways and make decorative items, throughout Australian history.

Send us a photo of something made from wood to go into the running to win one of three iPad2 tablets with stylish Miniot wooden covers.

Be as creative as you like with your photographs. Examples of types of photographs accepted include:

  • Close up shots of wooden floorboards showing the wood grains
  • Photos of old antique furniture
  • Buildings constructed from wood
  • Parts of buildings made of wood eg: window frames, house frames, floorboards
  • Use of wood in public spaces eg: benches, piers, signposts

The entries will be judged based on the quality, beauty and uniqueness of the photo. To enter a photo must be:

  • Taken in Australia,
  • Of a building, infrastructure and household or decorative item made from wood, (although photos of trees and forests are beautiful they are not eligible for this competition),
  • Taken by the contestant (or the contestant is authorised to submit the photo) and
  • Submitted by 31st December 2011.

There is no limit on the number of different photos that one person may enter.


Award categories

There are two award categories:

1. People's Choice Award

Once you have entered we will display your photo on the Make It Wood Facebook page. Simply ask your friends to vote for you by getting them to ‘like' your photo. The most liked photo will win this category. In the case that more than one photo has the same number of likes, the judges will decide which of these is the winning photo.

NB: Due to an overwhelmingly large amount of entries, voting for 'Snap Some Wood' has been extended until the end of January 2012.

2. The Make It Wood Award
Your entry will be judged by Planet Ark's judges once the competition has closed.

All entries will automatically be entered into both these categories. However, it is not possible to win both. The judges retain the right to make the ultimate decision on the winning photo.

Please read the terms and conditions before entering.
