Thank you to all the amazing photographers who entered the 2022 Summer Challenge photo competition, presented by LaCie.
Entries are now closed and the judges have had their say. You can see the winners and runners up across the three categories here.
We’d like to thank our amazing sponsor LaCie, without whose support we simply couldn’t have run The Summer Challenge. A big thank you too to our amazing judges – the incredibly talented Mandarine Montgomery, Charli Savage and Anthony McKee.
To all the photographers who entered this year, thank you for being part of it and for sharing your work! We hope you enjoyed the experience of planning and shooting the challenges, and sharing your amazing work.
Our new Summer Challenge will be back at the end of the year. We hope to see more of your amazing images then.
We've also created a new Australian Photography Summer Challenge Facebook Group where you can share your images, get feedback and see how other photographers are progressing with the challenges.
There was also the option to enter the Summer Challenge photo competition, with winners in each of the three categories taking home $1,000 cash and a swag of great prizes from LaCie. The competition closed for entries on 28 February 2022.

Three fun photography challenges to inspire you to capture creative images this summer.
Take a photo that includes an umbrella, even in a conceptual sense. As long as your image incorporates some semblance of an umbrella, what you shoot and how you shoot it is entirely up to you. Be creative and have fun!
Mirrors open up a range of photographic possibilities. Reflections can add balance, create symmetry, and expand the story-telling opportunities of any scene. Grab your camera, find a mirror or a reflection, and show us what you can do!

Summer is all about relaxing, forgetting what day it is and taking a few photos. Which brings us to our next challenge. Show us what the summer break and 'Time Out' means to you. Maybe it's time spent with family, a backyard barbecue, a game of beach cricket or an early morning kayak. Whatever it means to you, we'd love for you to get behind the lens and capture it.
