Photo competition

24 May 2021 until 23 June 2021

Do you have a great pic that features our amazing Eyre Peninsula landscapes, fresh water sources, sustainable agriculture, pest plants & animals, our region’s biodiversity, or the community taking part in landscape management?

We’d love you to share them with us!

We are looking for the best photos that showcase Eyre Peninsula’s landscapes and the priorities of the Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board. These priorities are sustainable agriculture, water, pest plants & animals, biodiversity and community.

Regional priorities for the Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board

Entries should focus on and tell us something about one of these five priorities in the area of the Eyre Peninsula that you live in.

A $200 gift voucher will be awarded to the photo judged best in each of the following six categories:

  • Water (relating to fresh water including creeks and wetlands, and managing water, e.g. a farm dam or creek at dusk, collecting a water sample)
  • Sustainable agriculture (including general farming work such as seeding or feeding sheep)
  • Pest plants & animals (for example, rabbits on your property or spraying of local weeds)
  • Biodiversity (including important coastal, estuarine and in-land habitats and species)
  • Community (relating to people being involved in landscape management, making sure you have permission to photograph the person/s as per the competition T&Cs)
  • Landscape/scenery (for example, a sunset photo of your farm)
