The Tom Oliver Award is a Special BirdLife Photography Award established in 2014; it seeks to entice photographers and/or photography-educators to create an original and inspiring educational resource enabling bird photographers to advance their photographic knowledge-base and technical competencies. This definition is deliberately broad to encourage lateral thinking and innovation by award entrants.  These resources should promote best practice in photographic techniques and could include aspects such as:

  • photographing small birds
  • photographing birds in flight
  • capturing interesting behaviours
  • compositional elements
  • post-production techniques and workflows
  • ethics in bird photography

BirdLife Photography invites entries for the 2019 Tom Oliver Award.  Entry is open to anyone living in Australia, and to overseas members of BirdLife Australia or Birdlife Photography.  Entries for the 2019 Award close on 15th July 2019.  Please see the Rules and Conditions page for details, and a link to the 2019 Entry Form.

The Tom Oliver Award is NOT a photographic competition; entries which are merely a portfolio of bird photographs will not be accepted.
