Our 2020 Photo Competitions for BirdLife Photography members will have the following themes:

  1. Best of 2019.  Up to four of your best bird shots taken during 2019.
  2. Finches and Chats.  Finches include all the birds within the family Weaver Finches (Estrildidae), detailed in the BWL taxonomy currently used on this website, plus the European Goldfinch and the European Greenfinch. Chats include the four species of Chat plus the Gibberbird.
  3. Head and Bill Portrait.  The focus is on the head and bill but an appropriate amount of neck and upper body (minimum please) as a base for the head and bill is acceptable.  The challenge is to obtain sharpness and clarity with the identifiable features of the head and bill including those features that identify the species.
  4. Reflections.  The reflection must be of the bird and will mainly be in water but could be in other reflective surfaces such as mirrors (eg. external mirrors on cars).  While many of the entries will be water-birds keep in mind that bush-birds go to water to drink early in the morning when the water is often still and ideal for reflection.  We have a number of such images in the BLP library ranging from cockatoos and parrots to small birds such as finches. The reflection must be recognisable as the bird that is the subject of the photograph.

Except for the Best of 2019 competition, all entries must have been taken within two years of the opening date of the competition.  The competition dates are now available, on the 2020 Competition Themes page.

 

Our October Newsletter contained an announcement of the Special Theme for the 2020 BirdLife Australia Photography Award competition, which is Australian Fairy-wrens, Emu-wrens and Grasswrens.  This much-loved Australasian bird family, the fairy-wrens, emu-wrens and grasswrens come in a wide range of stunning plumages. They are characterised by long legs, tiny bodies and long straight tails, and are always found in family groups. Many fairy-wrens are much loved features of our parks and gardens, while others, such as the endangered grasswrensand the elusive emu-wrens require special trips to see them and a lot of searching!  Images must contain one or more fairy-wren, emu-wren or grasswren species which are defined as all species in the family Maluridae.
