WATCH: The Very Best of Image Club 2017

Every year we get hundreds of photo submissions from people who fancy themselves handy snappers. To celebrate 2017 and to provide some inspiration for 2018, here’s a video of the top 3 images for every month of 2017.

If you also think you’re quite handy with a camera, please enter our monthly Image Club competition.

Send us your best photographs – holiday snaps, bushveld vistas or anything else ‘Country Life’ – and we might print your picture in the magazine or post it online.

AND there are great prizes on offer. First prize is worth R1 000; second R750; third R500; and fourth R250 and let’s not forget about the exclusive bragging rights.
