Last night was a pretty special night for me. One of my photos was shown on TV!

The local government owned TV station, ABC Australia, usually shows an image contributed by the public during the weather. Recently, I took a nice image of a bridge near where I grew up. I thought I'd submit this to the ABC to see if they would show it, and amazingly they did! The only unfortunate bit is they did not spell my surname right.
Now while this wasn't a competition that I won, it does demonstrate that you do 'need to be in it to win it'. Do you have a photo that you think is pretty good? Why not enter it in a local photo competition, or send it to your local TV station. Even if you don't think it will win, you may be surprised.
And if your photo is of a current news event, send it to your local newspaper. They are always after photos of local news and may even pay you.
.. oh and the temperatures shown are in Celsius. It doesn't get below freezing much here in Melbourne!
Late News : My photo was shown two more times over this weekend. I think the person who changes the images doesn't work on the weekends. More exposure for me!
