About the competition
Images must either be taken in Australia or its territories, or illustrate the work that Australian ecologists are undertaking in other countries. All entries must be submitted online as jpegs (for details please see the Conditions of Entry below). Photographs will be judged primarily on image quality, including photographic technique, composition and uniqueness, but the quality of the caption will also be taken into account.
Entry is limited to five (5) entries into each category per contestant – you will need to complete a separate submission for each image. The judges will choose a winner, second and third place-getters in each category, and – where considered merited – may also award a number of Highly Commended awards.
