Our 2021 Photo Competitions for BirdLife Photography members will have the following themes:

  1. Best of 2020.  Up to four of your best bird shots taken during 2020.
  2. Cranes, Storks, Crakes, Rails and Swamphens.  There should be something for everyone here. The following species are eligible: Brolga, Sarus Crane, Black-necked Stork, Lewin’s Rail, Buff-banded Rail, Lord Howe Woodhen, Chestnut Rail. Red-necked Crake, Red-legged Crake, Ruddy-breasted Crake, Baillon’s Crake, Australian Spotted Crake, Spotless Crake, White-browed Crake, Australasian Swamphen. Pale-vented Bush-hen, Watercock, White-breasted Waterhen, Eurasian Coot, Dusky Moorhen, Common Moorhen, Black-tailed Native-hen and Tasmanian Native-hen.
  3. Birds in the Landscape.  The challenge here is to photograph the bird in the landscape. The bird needs to be big enough to ensure that it is clearly identifiable as does the habitat/landscape in which it lives. Comments need to address both the bird and the habitat/landscape. For example, what is the landscape/habitat and is it a typical or unusual location for the species. No birds on sticks with a clear background required here. Examples are fruit-doves in rainforest trees, finches feeding on grass seeds, chats in heathland, kingfishers overlooking and including the stream, water-birds in wetlands, estuaries or beaches etc.
  4. Wrens.  The final competition for 2021 includes any species with “wren” as part of its common name (more than 30 species around Australia). It includes Emu-wrens, Fairy-wrens, Grasswrens, Fernwren, Fieldwrens, Heathwrens and Scrubwrens.

Except for the Best of 2020 competition, all entries must have been taken within three years of the opening date of the competition; this is a change to our standard competition rules.  The competition dates are now available, on the 2021 Competition Themes page.
