Camden Garden Festival offers photoshoot prize

Does your little one love to play in the garden or help out with yard work?

Well here’s your chance to win a special photoshoot for your bouncing baby green thumb.

A Gumnut Baby photo competition will be held as a part of Camden’s inaugural garden festival.

Camden Garden Festival organiser Emma Castle encouraged residents to send in their photos of kids under two years of age enjoying themselves in the great outdoors for a chance to win.

“The more creative the picture is, the better,” she said.

“People should enter because it’s fun.

“It’s always lovely to see your baby’s face in the paper and the prize is pretty fabulous too.

“It’s a great opportunity to flex your creative muscles, experiment with photography, and help support the new Camden Garden Festival.”

The grand prize is a $695 photoshoot with Emily O'Brien Photography which includes a 60 to 90 minute photo session, 50 Digital Images edited in both colour and black and white, 10 complimentary 5x7’’ matte art prints and more.
