(CNS): Young people ages 5 to 18 who want to enter Sunday’s 10Ten10 photo competition can obtain a free disposable digital camera through Saturday, 9 October at the National Trust office in South Sound. This photo competition is jointly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise, The Rotary Club of Cayman Brac, the National Trust, and the National Gallery. The theme of this nature-based youth photo competition is "A Day in the Life of the Cayman Islands" and it is open to young people in three age ranges: 5 to 9 years, 10 to 14 years, and 15 to 18 years. The photo categories will be Water, Pets/Animals, Floral, Still Life, Lines, Close-Up, and Reflections. Prizes will be awarded to the winning submissions in each of the age groups and photo categories.

To claim one of the free cameras, a parent’s or guardian’s signature is required on the entry form that is available by sending an e-mail to

Sunday, 10 October, will be the tenth day of the tenth month in the year 2010, and also the day that young people who participate in the 10Ten10 youth photo competition will be taking photos that capture the beauty of the Cayman Islands through their eyes.

Although free disposable cameras are being made available, young people are welcome to use their own digital cameras to shoot pictures on 10 October for this competition. However, all entries must be digital photographs—no film submissions will be accepted.
A group of Rotarians and National Trust staff met at the Grand Cayman National Trust office on Saturday, 2 October, to distribute free digital cameras to young people entering the 10Ten10 photography competition. The youthful entrants were also provided with free photography advice to help them do well in the competition.

The free digital cameras will continue to be distributed this week during normal office hours and on Saturday, 9 October from 9am to noon at the National Trust office. Similarly, Cayman Brac Rotarians will be distributing free cameras this week to youngsters in the Sister Islands.

Rotary Sunrise was chartered in 2002 and has members who are mostly young professionals from Cayman and 24 other countries. They have fun contributing to the Cayman community and meet for breakfast at 7am on Wednesdays at the Grand Old House.
