Our first photo competition for this year is On the Beach.  We will accept pictures of birds on a beach – sand, pebbles, mud, or (stretching the definition of beach a little) rock shelf – or birds in/over water adjacent to a beach; we will also accept pictures of birds on beach structures (eg. piers, boat-ramps, etc).  We will NOT accept photos of birds in trees (including mangroves) beside a beach, birds on cliff-sides, or birds on/over the open ocean (eg images taken during a pelagic trip).  Since Australia has an extensive coastline, there’s lots of beach, so plenty of opportunity for this competition; but Australia also has lots of inland, and so in order not to disadvantage members who don’t make it to the coast, we’ll also consider that “beach” applies to beach-like sections of riverbanks and lake shores (rivers and lakes must contain water – Lake Eyre in the dry season is not acceptable).

This competition is open to members for submission of entries until Monday 26th February 2018.  Images for this competition must have been taken within the last two years.  Images submitted to previous competitions, or to the New Images gallery, may be submitted to this competition; if you choose to do this, you must resubmit the image to the competition gallery; images moved from another existing gallery will not be accepted.  See the Photo Gallery - Competitions section for full details and rules of our competitions, and quick access to the current competition galleries.
