Landcare Local Wildlife Photo Competition
AUTUMN IN MY BACKYARD
$500 prize money
Send your snap of any bird insect animal (must be identified)
With students learning at home, May 2020 seems a good time to encourage families to learn more about the creatures in their backyard.
Pittsworth Landcare is offering $500 in prizemoney to photographers, young and old, to submit their snaps of local wildlife taken at their place - urban or rural.
There’s $100 first prize for each of three sections: primary school, secondary school and adult.
The photos must have been taken between March 1 and May 30 this year in the Pittsworth district.
Entries close on Sunday May 31. They should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with correct identification and up to 30 words of information.
Pittsworth Landcare secretary Lana Bradshaw said the photos could be of any creature on the home property.
“It could be anything from ants to kangaroos - ants, birds, butterflies, lizards, flies - anything but not pets or domestic livestock,” Ms Bradshaw said.
“It’s important the creature is identified correctly. If all else fails, check out Bush Blitz or other online resources.”
There is no entry fee. Limit of three images per person. Images may be used by Pittsworth Landcare for educational or promotional purposes.
Happy snapping in your backyard!
