The Challenge

This challenge was chosen by Micci Shannon the winner of our “Things that fly” challenge. Please support Micci in her choice by giving us a great entry. We are looking for photos of “New Beginnings” This could include baby animals (bearing in mind the name of the group…so no domestic pets please), flowers, trees etc. As long as the shot clearly shows a New Beginning. This should be a great challenge to enter as there are so many subject choices to choose from

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for your favourite shot bearing in mind the challenge and group rules

Rewards & Prizes

Banners for the winner and top ten and providing we have more than 20 entries we shall also be offering a $20 RB voucher and the winner gets to choose a future challenge

Additional Information

As always your shot MUST be entered into the group PRIOR to entering the challenge. Shots not complying with this rule will be deleted without notice…sorry it is too time consuming to firstly check the shots are in group and then to have to BM everyone who does not comply and believe us there are lots who don’t on every challenge!
