2014 Budding Photographer Competition

Entries are now open for the 2014 Budding Photography competition.

With a prize pool of over $1,500 including cash and prizes, there is plenty of reason to bring your camera to the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan to try and snap that winning shot.

Last year we received more than 270 entries, and the competition is set to be just as strong in 2014.

This is a great way to explore the country’s largest Botanic Garden and further develop your skills in photography. Competition categories include People in Gardens, Plants and Animals, Landscapes, Up Close and Personal (Macro) as well as categories for Primary School and High School aged students.

The Garden offers endless opportunities to capture stunning images of Australian plants, animals and landscapes. Let the wonderful textures, colours and shapes offer inspiration for creative imagery.

A $10 fee per image applies for general entry, and photos entered in the children’s categories are only $5 per entry. Members of the Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens receive a 10% discount on all entries. All photographs submitted into the competition must be taken at the Garden.
