We have another gallery where our members can post images.  The Landscapes/Habitats gallery is where you can post images of places, such as long range/wide angle landscape photos, or patches of habitat, such as medium range views of typical scrub, forest, wetlands, etc.  Places must be within Australia or its external territories/dependencies.

BirdLife Australia is hoping that this will become a useful resource for their Key Biodiversity Areas project, which Paul Sullivan, CEO BirdLife Australia, and Fiona Blandford, Network Development Coordinator, spoke about to those of us who were forunate enough to attend our recent Digital Photography in the Bush event at Geelong.

The BirdLife Photography Annual Award for 2016 - our most prestigous award - was presented to Ian Wilson at our recent Digital Photography in the Bush event at Geelong.  This award is made to the member who excels against the following criteria:

  • at least 24 high quality images submitted to the image galleries through the website during the calendar year,
  • participates in at least 50% of the Current Competitions organised during the calendar year,
  • actively contributes to at least one of a range of BirdLife Photography activities, events, project or resources that benefit our members.

 In addition to this award, Ian also won the Gold medal for the Photo Competitions - Advanced Level category.
