Watch this space, Winners announced soon!  

Who's got the coolest car, the dirtiest dunger, the most radical rat bike or the toughest tradie ute? We want your pics! Entries now closed.

Merimbula News Weekly, Bega District News and Eden Magnet are very happy to announce Bega Valley’s Best Car and Bike Photo Competition.

This competition will run over four weeks and is open to residents of Bega Valley Shire and surrounding areas. All entries will be posted online via our local Fairfax news websites. Remember this is a photo competition. The higher the quality of photo submitted, the greater chance of making the finals.

“The most important element of a good photograph is the ability of the photo to communicate with the viewer. It should be able to tell a story through its composition, lighting, and most importantly its subject matter.”
