2021 Photo Competition
Thanks to all individuals who entered the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s annual photo competition, the competition calling on local photographers to share their images of the Limestone Coast’s treasures is now closed.
The theme for the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s 2021 photo competition was ‘Our Changing Landscape’ and entries showcased how the photographers see the region's landscape in the past, present and future.
Entrants were asked to focus on and tell a story about the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s priorities of sustainable primary production, water, biodiversity, plants, animals and education of the community to sustainably manage our landscapes.
The scope and quality of entries in both the OPEN and U18 categories in 2021 has been outstanding. With well over 230 entries showcasing the Limestone Coast, the judging panel did not have an easy task of selecting the winners.
The photo competition is a great way for the Limestone Coast community to connect with country, explore and capture what is unique about our spectacular region.
The winners will share in some great prizes, and selected photos will feature in a range of the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s publications and social media platforms.

Limestone Coast treasure, key to capturing winning photo
A passion for photography and an eye for detail have resulted in this year’s winning photo entry in the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s 2021 photo competition open category.
John Carter, the photographer behind the spectacular image of a sunset over Mullinger Swamp near Naracoorte, said the area is a great place for photography as its still waters offer a myriad of reflections and photographic opportunity.
John’s interest in photography stems from his teenage years and he finds photography a relaxing past time from a busy workplace at Teys in Naracoorte.
