Our 2022 Photo Competitions for BirdLife Photography members will have the following themes:

  1. Best of 2021.  Up to four of your best bird shots taken during 2021.
  2. Migrants.  Included in this category are bird species that visit Australia from overseas on a regular basis as part of their lifecycle.  It does not include vagrants.  It includes Australian species that move interstate to breed.
  3. Creating Artistic Images.  Anything goes as long as you meet the image size requirements.  Images can be colour or monochrome.  The comments must explain how you took or created the image and what you were trying to achieve with your image. 
  4. Raptors, Owls, Frogmouths and Nightjars.  The final competition for 2022 includes 52 species from the above groups.  Only photographs taken during the day will be accepted; for ethical reason images taken at night using artificial light or flash will not be accepted.

Except for the Best of 2021 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.  Full details of the competition themes, and the competition dates, are now available on the 2022 Competition Themes page.  The coming months may give opportunities to photograph candidates for the Migrants competition.
