A PHOTOGRAPHER will have her snaps delivered to every household in Ipswich after winning the Capture the Cover competition for the region's Yellow Pages.

The judges favoured Deebing Heights resident Lisa Roper's photo of an illuminated spider's web and a green tree frog, both to feature on the cover of the phone books.

Ms Roper said she was stoked to win the competition after taking up photography so she had quality pictures to remember her children as they grew up.

"After I had my kids I just wanted to have really good photos I could keep forever," she said.

Capture the Cover judge, photographer Greg Wilson, said the images he chose to represent the Ipswich region reflected its charming rural nature.

"This cover has a real country theme to it, which wasn't intentional. It was that a lot of the entries celebrated the rural flavour of the Ipswich area. These photos communicate what the region is all about and how it is so different to big Brisbane city," he said.

Sensis marketing specialist Beth Kyle said Yellow Pages was overwhelmed with entries as part of Capture the Cover, which called on residents to submit photos of their community under the theme Through the Eyes of a Local.

"As the new Yellow Pages books are more relevant than ever, we wanted to make sure the outside of the books reflected this," she said.

Ms Roper won an iPad for her efforts.

These photos communicate what the region is all about and how it is so different to big Brisbane city.
