BirdLife Photography is pleased to announce the launch of the Australian Bird Photographer of the Year competition, being jointly organised by BirdLife Australia and BirdLife Photography.  The Australian Bird Photographer of the Year competition will showcase both the beauty and vulnerability of our unique birdlife; we anticipate some great images of Australian avifauna.  The competition will be open to any person to submit images of Australian birds, in the following categories:

  • Bird Portrait
  • Bird Behaviour
  • Human Impact
  • Creative/Fine Art
  • Special theme: Black-cockatoos
  • There is also a Youth (under 18 years) category encompassing any of these categories.

Full details of the competition will be provided in the following months as we move towards opening the competition for entries in the mid-year; please keep a watch for further announcements and get busy with your cameras.
