£400 cam­era for best read­ers’ pic

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

The Can­ter­bury district and Faver­sham are a pho­tog­ra­pher’s par­adise, of­fer­ing jaw-drop­ping cityscapes, miles of spec­tac­u­lar coast­line and charm­ing town streets bustling with peo­ple.

Ev­i­dence of this can be seen each week through the read­ers’ pic­tures which brighten up the pages of our pa­pers.

And now we’ve teamed up with The Can­ter­bury Cam­era Cen­tre to re­ward the best, with a £400 travel cam­era up for grabs for the top photo of 2018.

Ev­ery week we want to see the best images taken lo­cally, and of any genre, in­clud­ing land­scapes, wildlife, peo­ple, places and events.

We are look­ing for the images that cap­ture the char­ac­ter of Can­ter­bury, Herne Bay, Whit­stable or Faver­sham.

The best photo of the month will win an A4 can­vas print of their win­ning ef­fort, while the favourite of 2018 – cho­sen in a public vote – will scoop a fan­tas­tic Pana­sonic Lu­mix TZ90, which is con­sid­ered one of the best com­pact travel cam­eras.

It boasts a huge 24-720mm lens, 20.3MP sen­sor, 4K video ca­pa­bil­ity and a flip out three-inch screen which is great for those all-im­por­tant self­ies.

To­gether with a mem­ory card and case, it is a pack­age worth £400, courtesy of The Can­ter­bury Cam­era Cen­tre, which is in the St George’s Cen­tre op­po­site Wait­rose.

Its boss, Yan Cowley, said: “We are de­lighted to sup­port the read­ers’ pic­tures com­pe­ti­tion and hope it will en­cour­age lots of ter­rific pho­to­graphs.”
