Great Walks' Wilderness Photographer of the Year opens for entries
Our sister title, Great Walks magazine, has launched the Wilderness Photographer of the Year 2021, a new competition that celebrates the best photography of our natural world.
Months in the making, Great Walks magazine is proud to announce it is now accepting entries and there's a fantastic stash of prizes up for grabs.
“Fans of photography will love this competition,” says Great Walks editor Brent McKean.
“Wilderness Photographer of the Year offers a genuine possibility for amateur, semi-professional and professional photographers to win part of the $14k in prizes and have their work published in print and online.”
Winners and runners-up will share in a prize pool of over $14,000 including $4,000 cash, and prizes including the latest Nokia smartphones, a three-day walking tour of Tasmania, a trip to NZ's Milford Sound, and a team entry into Oxfam Trailwalker.
Also the best 20 images in each category will be published in the Dec-Jan 2022 issue of Great Walks and appear online.
There are two categories for Wilderness Photographer of the Year – People and Places.
People: Your best photos with people in the frame – the ones you hike with or meet on your walk, the rangers, wardens and guides, and maybe people who live on the trail.
Places: The sweeping panoramas and dramatic horizons, the spectacular coastlines and inspiring wilderness here and overseas that fills your senses and fills your lenses!
Currently entry is $25 per photo (31 May-15 Aug); and Late entry is $30 per photo (16 Aug-5 Sept 2021). For all the info, click here: http://www.greatwalks.com.au/wpoty
