Macarthur Nature Photography Competition

The 2019 Macarthur Nature Photography Competition is now closed but will return in 2020.

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 2019. The MNPC encourages residents to explore the local biodiversity of the Macarthur area and capture its beauty and uniqueness through photography.

This year over 300 photographs were submitted in the following themes:

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

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 age category and theme were announced at an Awards Ceremony held at Camden Civic Centre, Camden.

More than $4000 worth of prizes were up for grabs for individuals, primary and high schools. Winners received cash prizes from the Macarthur Councils and Macarthur Camera House, as well as gift vouchers from Narellan Town Centre.
