Nature Photographer of the Year

The bioregion that encompasses Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea possesses a unique natural heritage stretching back more than 80 million years, to the break-up of the great southern continent of Gondwana. Together with the South Australian Museum, Australian Geographic is committed to enhancing general knowledge of this extraordinary legacy by encouraging photography of the region’s nature and landscapes, and promoting it in this annual competition to find the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year.

Photographers are invited to submit their entries in the 2019 Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition, cost of entry and the full details on the competition website. Entries will close on Thursday 25 January 2018 at 5pm ACDT.

This annual feast of the best nature photographs now offers over $50,000 in cash and prizes, including a voyage to Papua New Guinea or the Spice Islands with Coral Expeditions for the winner and travel companion.
