I’ve always liked great photographs, especially nature photographs. The South Australian Museum owns and runs the annual ANZANG Nature Photography Competition. As you can guess from the title, photographs focus (pun intended) on the natural heritage of the Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and the New Guinea regions.
That’s a big area and provides for a broad range of photo opportunities, but all with a hint of Gondwana, maybe?
The annual photography competition highlights this unique region and encourages conservation and protection of the region’s native flora and fauna.
It was founded by Perth surgeon Dr Stuart Miller in 2003 before the South Australian Museum took ownership of the competition in 2009.
The prizes are pretty good, $5,000 for overall winner!
There are 10 categories being:
- Animal Behaviour
- Animal Portrait
- Threatened Species
- Black & White
- Our Impact
You can see more of these wonderful photographs here.
Each year the museum puts together the ANZANG Nature and landscape
book which helps to support the competition.
