Featured prize: Lumix DC-TZ90 worth $599

Lumix DC-TZ90 $599 

As the Walk1200km Facebook group can attest, taking photos on walks is a must. We’ll be giving away four Lumix TZ90 cameras over the next 12 months. Every three months we’ll start a new photo competition themed around the seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. First up is Summer. Simply take your best summer-themed photos on your walks. 

But what makes a good photo? We’re looking for images that celebrate walking: beautiful views, happy people, achievement, wildlife. Tip: the best photos  have a clear subject and people make a very compelling subject! Tip: Always submit hi-res photos – don’t reduce their size to make it easier to email – we need the original image.
