All you photographers out there, take note: there are still 24 days left for you to submit your imagery to the #CanonShine platform, a project that celebrates images with a very personal meaning behind them. We’ve been featuring some of our favourite entries over the past few weeks, spotlighting work that is both inspiring and memorable. [upload your photo to the #CanonShine platform here]

The #CanonShine competition is open to amateur and professional photographers alike and presents a wonderful opportunity for the winner to have their image brought to life through a national advertising campaign; a two month display in the NSW State Library; and a documentary made about their journey.

So grab that camera, get out there and capture something special. To give you some ideas, here are a few recent entrants that have caught our eye on the #CanonShine platform.

‘I’d like to shine a light on the amazing faces we share Sydney with but usually don’t see. Beneath busy city wharves, underwater wildlife exists and will seize any opportunity it can to thrive, even moving into empty beer bottles’.
