This year's topics were chosen by Elisabeth Woodham. She's the one holding the body of the camera in this picture - the squirrel holding the business end clearly thought her settings needed some adjustment!
Once tamed, the portrait of the squirrel might be ideal in category nine of the list:
- Colour Purple (Donny Osmond's favourite!)
- An Event
- Indoor Sport
- British Wild Animal (not in a zoo!)
- Something Fishy!
- On Holiday
The competition rules are straightforward - competitors must enter one original digital image (taken this year) in each category. Entries to be submitted at the end of November. How the categories are interpreted is down to the photographer - the more creative the better, however Lis has warned that she doesn't want to see a lot of post-processing or manipulation of the images!
