Cotton Australia general manager Michael Murray said there was still time for photographers to snap their images and enter the competition.

“We’ve been blown away by the positive response from the hard-working people of the Aussie cotton industry who have entered so far,” Mr Murray said.

“This competition helps us give the world a glimpse into the lives of the people who are the backbone of our industry, and show off the stunning environment we have to produce this important crop.

“Entries for this year’s competition close on June 8, and we encourage everyone to get snapping and send in their images. This is a valuable opportunity to get creative and share your story of life in our cotton industry.”
