Last chance to enter The Nature Conservancy Australia‘s 2021 photo contest

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Australia’s photo contest will close on Tuesday 31 August. There is still time for all nature lovers and photographers to share their passion and submit their best nature shots! 

The contest is open to anyone with a love for nature, amateur as well as professional photographers. Entries can be submitted across four categories: People and Nature, Landscapes, Wildlife, Water. People can submit as many entries as they want.  

“We are all in some way going through a challenging time, with many of us deprived of our social connections. The outdoors have never been so important,” TNC Australia Managing Director Alison Rowe said. “At a time when we realise how much we need to connect with nature’s beauty, we are also reminded of the fragility of this beauty, with the recent conclusions of the IPCC report being clear: nature is under pressure and ecosystems are threatened. This is why this year, TNC’s photo contest has a special meaning.” 

“So far, the quality and level of entries has been unbelievable,” renowned landscape photographer and 2021 photo contest judge Christian Fletcher said. “Composition lighting and subject matter will all be taken into consideration in the judging process. Most of all I want to be taken to a place I haven’t been before, not literally, but in a way I haven’t seen captured before.”   

Prizes will be awarded for the best Australian photos, with the total prize pool, including prizes for global and Australian winners, exceeding AUD$16,000 in value. 

For full details, terms and conditions, and to upload your photo entries, go to www.natureaustralia.org.au/photo from August 1st.
