Take a photo of your favourite South Australian heritage place before 13 July to go into the running to win some great prizes.

South Australia has over 2,290 registered state heritage places and the heritage team want to know more about why they are important to the community.

All SA residents, tourists and visitors are invited to participate in this exciting on-line competition. There are numerous photographic categories, fantastic prizes to be won, and entry is open to everyone.

Simply take a photo of your favourite state heritage listed place and tell the heritage team in 100 words or less how you connect with it and value it, and submit this online.

Entering is very easy, just follow the link: http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/…/visiting-…/Heritage-SnAps

Department of Environment and Water Executive Director Strategy and Advice Matt Johnson said the Heritage SnAps photo competition encouraged people to visit and photograph heritage buildings and natural heritage sites.

“We are lucky to have a wealth of heritage places in the state, with nearly 2300 places listed on the South Australian Heritage Register, so there’s plenty to choose from,” Mr Johnson said.

“Some of those are well-known buildings like Parliament House, the Art Gallery, or the Adelaide Town Hall, or iconic natural locations such as Kelly Hill Caves and the fossils at Emu Bay.

“The Heritage Register also includes a number of State Heritage Areas, which take in more than just a single building, and include special parts of towns or suburbs like Hahndorf, Parndana, Port Adelaide, Colonel Light Gardens, Mount Torrens and Burra.

“We don’t just want to see the iconic sites, though – this is a great opportunity to share the stories of lesser-known heritage places with the wider community.

“The competition will also help add to the existing records of these places, as it’s important to be able to compare changes over time.”

There are eight categories in the Heritage SnAps competition:

Category 1 – Eating and Drinking (in State Heritage listed places)

Category 2 – Arts and Culture (relating to State Heritage listed places)

Category 3 – State Heritage places to visit

Category 4 – Wild SA (Natural State Heritage places)

Category 5 – Recreation and Garden (heritage related)

Category 6 – Heritage of the SA West Coast

Category 7 – Young talent (under the age of 18 as at 1 July 2018)

Category 8 – Professional and edited photos

The winner in each category will receive a certificate of recognition and a prize, with a prize for the best overall picture as chosen by the judging panel.

There will also be a people’s choice award, allowing the public to vote for their favourite image from the judging panel’s top 20.
