Photo Competition

Grab out your camera and start snapping.  Submit your best picture of your favorite pet in our Photo competition which is run through the assistance of Dubbo Photo News.  There are plenty of terrific prizes for the pictures that grab our attention, make us laugh or are just really cute.

Keep the kids busy and see if they can make the puppies in our colouring-in competition look great.  Completed entries can be dropped in to the Dubbo or Wellington Council office or the Macquarie Regional Library.
