We’re running a competition to see your best photos and snapshots of your life, Australia and the world around you.

And if your shot happens to be our best for the week, you’ll go into the running to win one of three Sony a7C cameras and SEL2860 kit lens, valued at $3899 each.

It may be Sony’s smallest and lightest camera and lens systems, but the company says its powers are mighty.

Advanced AF performance and functions, rapid-fire continuous shooting and a handy vari-angle LCD monitor help capture the action whenever it happens – the perfect tool to enhance any budding photographer’s creativity.

Anything you capture can be transferred directly to your smartphone or tablet – meaning you can share with friends and family in just moments.

For your chance to win – and to feature your own photos on news.com.au each week – you can upload them here or tag them with #newscomauphotos on Instagram.

This week’s short-listed winner is:

Matt Godsell, VICTORIA

This hungry lizard was spotted during a road trip near the outback town of Wilcannia, NSW. Saw the lizard on the road chowing down on what I think was a desiccated frog. It dropped the frog and poked out its tongue.” Also note the blow fly sitting on its head, so Australian it hurts.

Wesley Smith, NSW
