2017 Animals in the Wild photo competition and exhibition

The annual Animals in the Wild photo competition is back and entries are now open! This competition encourages animal and nature lovers to shoot with a camera not a gun.

The competition is part of the Greens campaign against recreational hunting, and in particular the arms fair 'Huntfest' held in Narooma every year.

This year there is a prize of a $100 gift voucher 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, including the reality of environmental and habitat damage, hunting, and guns and killing culture in Australia

D. The most beautiful image of an animal in the wild photographed by a photographer aged 16 years or under.

Shortlisted photographs will first be exhibited in Bodalla over the June long weekend where the winners will be announced as selected by renowned Australian photographer Rex Dupain.
