Edition 319:7th February 2014   

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

We hope you enjoy this week's edition of our newsletter with all the latest information about what's happening on the website.

2014 Photo Comp

Shop Image Entries to the ExplorOz Photo Comp are flooding in, well done to everyone that has submitted entries so far. If you haven't gotten around to it yet, don't delay as entries close in four weeks! Remember the theme is “Aussie Landscapes” and the winning photo will be replicated via an artist who will paint the image onto a 900mm circular saw blade.

The image here shows you one of the artist's similar work to give you some idea. This rare, unique and collectible item will be auctioned at the National Gathering that is booked to take place in outback NSW in September 2014.

Entry is only open to ExplorOz Members. The winning photographer will receive an ExplorOz Merchandise Pack plus $150 voucher to spend in the ExplorOz Shop.

Competition closes midnight Friday 7th March, 2014. For more competition information on how to enter see ExplorOz Photo Competition 2014.
