Make it snappy with SANParks photo competition

Posted on 14 August 2019

In case you still needed any incentive to get out and explore the country’s bountiful landscapes, entries for the Annual SANParks Photo Competition 2019 are still open.

The competition caters to photographers in two divisions with four categories in each; those with specialised camera equipment and those with compact or phone cameras.
