Our first photo competition for this year is Best of 2020As the name implies, we invite you to submit your best image(s) taken during 2020.

This competition is open to members for submission of entries until 6pm AEDST Monday 8th March 2021.  The normal 2-year time limit for photos does not apply for this competition; images for this competition must have been taken during 2020 (ie. between 1st January 2020 and 31st December 2020).  Up to four of your best images may be submitted.  Images submitted to previous competitions, or to the New Images gallery, may be submitted to this competition; if you choose to do this, you must resubmit the image to the competition gallery; images cannot be moved from another existing gallery.  See the Photo Gallery - Competitions section for full details and rules of our competitions, and quick access to the current competition galleries.  As usual, there are three competition levels: Entry, Intermediate and Advanced.  Please refer to the  Photo Gallery - Competitions - Competition Levels - Guidelines page for more details.  All three levels will be open to member voting at the close of submissions, and a Mystery Reviewer will judge all levels; there may be a delay in publishing these reviews for this competition. 

The theme for the third competition this year has been changed from Birds in the Landscape to Birds in their Habitat (excluding waterbirds).  Please check the changed requirements for this theme on the 2021 Competition Themes page so that you can accumulate appropriate entry images prior to this competition's commencement on 21 June.
