Macarthur Nature Photography Competition

The 2018 Macarthur Nature Photography Competition is now closed but will return in 2019.

In a world seemingly overloaded by a daily avalanche of images, through Instagram, Facebook and television, a striking image can still cut through the clutter of it all, revealing to us something in our worlds that we have been missing.

The Macarthur Councils once again hosted the highly anticipated Macarthur Nature Photography Competition (MNPC) in 2018. The MNPC encourages residents to explore the local biodiversity of the Macarthur area and capture its beauty and uniqueness through photography.

In 2018 over 400 photographs were submitted in the following themes:

  • Native flora
  • Native fauna
  • Waterways
  • Experience Nature
  • Landscapes of Macarthur

This year the competition was divided into the following three age categories:

  • Primary School: 12 years and under
  • High School: 13-18 years
  • Open Section: 18 years and over

Winners in each theme and age category were announced at an Awards Ceremony held at Plant Bank at the Australian Botanic Gardens, Mount Annan.

More than $4000 worth of prizes was up for grabs for individuals, primary and high schools.

Winners received cash prizes from the Macarthur Councils, as well as Macarthur Camera House vouchers and nature-based experience vouchers.
