Pet photo contest sparks interest
SCHOOL students are getting snappy at their pets.
Snappy with a camera, that is.
The Your Best Pet Picture competition encourages youngsters to show off their pets in the best possible way and is sponsored by the RSPCA.
Part of Bundy in Bloom festivities, the photo competition culminates on Saturday, September 4 at the Salvation Army Tom Quinn Community Centre, with photos on display between 8am and 12pm.
“Every picture entered will be placed on display, so everyone will have the chance to be a star photographer,” Bloom and Tune event coordinator Julie Taster said.
“It will be a fun morning, with a huge range of market and food stalls throughout the community gardens and around the centre,” she said.
The PCYC, City of Bundaberg Drum Corp, Salvation Army Pipe Band and Jazz Band will hold displays and entertain.
Ms Taster said there would also be a charity auction, which includes an award-winning artwork and handcrafted furniture.
Funds raised will go back into the community, supporting Bundaberg Salvation Army programs.
To enter the Your Best Pet Picture competition, take a picture of your pet, write your name, address and contact number on the back and post it to the centre at 8 Killer Street.
“We also encourage any schools that want to put in class submissions to give me a call,” Ms Taster said.
She can be contacted at the centre on 4153 3557.
