The Pilbara’s amateur photographers are being encouraged to enter a nationwide photography competition by unveiling the treasures of the natural world.

The Nature Conservancy’s annual photography competition opened this month and encourages photographers of all abilities to capture images of Australian lands, waters and wildlife.

With more than $8000 in prizes to be won, this year will see a rare opportunity to have a one-on-one workshop with one of the competition judges, as well as being featured in a 2018 edition of Wild magazine.

This year’s judges include some of the nation’s most sought-after nature photographers, Ben Goode, Mark Seabury, Michael Snedic and Sera Wright.

The competition aims to inspire Australians to engage with nature through photography, and celebrate Australia’s natural beauty.

Competition categories include landscape, wildlife, water, urban, nature and whacky wildife, as well as a people’s choice winner.

The Nature Conservancy Australia director Rich Gilmore said there was no better way to get back to nature than embracing the photographer within.

“We’ve had so many entries over the years, with people from all corners of the country getting out and taking pictures of Australia’s scenery,” he said.

“This competition is a great chance for people to capture this beauty and properly appreciate nature.”

Entries close on October 27. To find out more or enter a photo, visit natureaustralia.org.au/photo.
