Animals in the Wild 2015

We are excited to announce that the Animals in the Wild photographic competition is relaunching for 2015, with entries opening on 5 May 2015.

The competition is part of our campaign against recreational hunting, and in particular the photographic hunting competition run by Narooma’s Huntfest which will be returning this year as a fully fledged arms fair selling guns, ammunition and operating a mobile air range.

We are extremely fortunate that renowned photographer Rex Dupain is again judging the competition. His professional eye and love of nature are a great support.

Animals in the Wild is encouraging animal lovers and nature enthusiasts to explore Australia’s beautiful forests, parks and nature reserves and, while we are all out there, to shoot with a camera, not a gun.

The prize of a $100 gift voucher will be awarded to the best picture in each of the following categories:

a. The image that most evokes a connection with an animal in the wild in Australia

b. The most beautiful image of a bird in the wild in Australia

c. The image that conveys the threats facing native animals in Australia

d. The image that best conveys the reality of the hunting, guns and killing culture in Australia

We look forward to receiving your entries; please forward the link to this page to any budding photographers who might also be interested in entering. If you have any questions please contact david.shoebridge@parliament.nsw.gov.au

The winner will be announced on 6 June 2015 in Narooma.
