CCP Photo Comp - January - March 2024

Theme and Brief 

 Summer 

CCP Photo Comp - January - March 2024

Most live in the best place for summer, by the beaches here on the east coast of Australia, but hey, you might be visiting or living in a beautiful lush regional landscape somewhere in the world.


No matter where you are, summer has a unique way of making you feel, and summer has a look like no other.


The sun, the shadows, the sweat and the flies - yeah those dang, those flies.


Sun screen, hats and tans.


BBQ’s, parties and fans.


Love it or loathe it, capture a scene that shows us what SUMMER means to you.
