Less than a month remains to enter the 2018 Life and Light Photo Competition

Amateur and professional photographers have less than a month to enter their images in this year’s Life and Light Photo Competition and go into the running for part of the $5,400 prize money.

The highly regarded competition, which is celebrating its 20th year, has already had some great images entered across its colour, black and white and digitally enhanced categories.

In addition to these categories, there is also a category for professional photographers, and a category to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the competition titled ‘20 years of Life and Light’. This category is open to any photos that have been entered in the competition over the previous 19 years.

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘What makes our outback special?’

Western Landcare coordinator, Henry Gregory is pleased the competition is again proving to be popular, however he urged people not to wait until the last minute to enter their images.

“This competition is always so popular and I think a large part of that is because the Western region offers such beauty and diversity to be photographed,” Mr Gregory said.

“It has been great to have a couple of new categories this year and open the competition up to professional photographers.

“I’d encourage people to enter their photos as soon as they take them, it’s very simple to do via the Life and Light website.

“If people are unable to get out to the Western region to take photos but have been there in the previous couple of years, they can enter photos that were taken after 1 January 2016.”

A full list of competition rules can be found on the Life and Light website which is also the site people submit their photographs.

The competition closes on 31 March with winners announced at Agfair in Broken Hill on Friday, 4 May.
