April’s best #MyCanonWorld photos


From insects to wildflowers, we want your best photos of nature in urban spaces – and there’s awesome Canon gear up for grabs.

We’re running a competition over on Instagram where you can win a new Canon DSLR worth R32999, or one of four monthly camera bundle prizes worth more than R8000 each. (Want to know more, as well as read our judge’s cheat sheet? Read through the competition guidelines here.)

Here’s the shortlist of best images we’ve seen for April: think you can do better? The competition is running until 24 July, so get your entries in!

All of the above entries (as well as five every month for the next three months) are now the running to win the grand prize of a Canon DLSR camera kit worth R32999!

And the winner of this month’s spot prize (drawn at random from the above selection), is Dustin van Helsdingen, who has won a Canon EOS M10 and a TS 6040 wireless printer. Well done Dustin!
