Family Beach Photo Competition 2016

I promised in my last newsletter that I would let you know when the Photo Competition opened ...Well it's open NOW!

How exciting it is to get this competition up and away!

I haven't been able to do so for 2 years and now I can offer the opportunity for you to share one or some of YOUR fantastic family at the beach photos for us all to enjoy!

Did you realise that when you share your photo/s you actually get to be a part of the website with your very own page? Yes, that's right. You are 'published' :-)

Photos that are taken can be of any aspect to do with fun times at the beach whether it be play or serious stuff like building sandcastles for competitions or perhaps that family grudge cricket match etc.

Entries are open to anyone from anywhere in the world. In fact I encourage my Interstate visitors to contribute as I love to see beaches in other parts of the world.

The photos can be of you and the kids, you alone or with your partner. Any family members or friends even can be in the photo. Just so long as we can see some sand and water its a welcomed entry!

This year the winning entry will receive a $50 Online Shopping Voucher to spend at


This Company offers a fabulous selection of Books, Cd's, Dvd's and Games, suitable for all ages and a great source for that special gift or occasion.

Hop on over to the Competition Page and submit your entry or entries.

'You Gotta Be In It To Win It!'

This was the entry winner for 2012

Here are examples of the 2013 year's entries so you can get an idea of what sort of photos can be submitted.
