Challenge pens pretty picture

FANCY yourself as a story teller?

Or maybe you are more comfortable wielding a camera? Well the invitation is out there for you to produce some of your most inspiring work for the 2012 River Recollections Writing and Photography Challenge.

This is the second year the creative competition has been organised by the Condamine Headwaters Landcare Group.

Last year the inaugural challenge was part of the Love My River Festival and was so well supported, CHLG co-ordinator Catherine Potter has opted to run it again.

"Last year was such a huge success that we are once again putting out the challenge," she said.

The most creative poem or story, which encapsulates actual memories or experiences along the Condamine River, will be rewarded with great prizes.

While the photograph that captures the most striking image of our favourite watercourse will win this section.

Mrs Potter said the concept was about capturing the Condamine River and showcasing its role in our daily lives, along with its diverse moods and the way in which it touches the people, who live along it.

"For a bit of fun, a further prize shall also be provided for the best photo of a person forming the Landcare symbol with their hands," she said.
