Win a photo safari in the Masai Mara worth $13 000
Capture something close-by to go really far. Taken a picture of your cat that could rival the sharpest close-up of a leopard? Snapped a pigeon majestically diving for a slice of bread? Your best ‘everyday extraordinary’ photo could help you win two places on a 7-day luxury photo safari in the Masai Mara with C4 Photo Safaris and BBC Big Cat Diaries presenter, Jonathan Scott.

It’s not about what you see.
It’s how you see it.

There’s no question that the Masai Mara is spectacular – but if you have the eye for it, you can take a photo safari in your own back yard. Whether it’s your cat stalking your foot, some suburban bugs migrating across the garden, your neighbour’s dog circling its supper or a street-smart pigeon from downtown – show us your unique perspective. Your best ‘everyday extraordinary’ photo could be your ticket to the Masai Mara.
