The Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year competition celebrates the natural heritage of the Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea bioregions each year.
Finalists are chosen in the categories: Animal Portrait, Animal Behaviour, Animal Habitat, Landscape, Monochrome, Interpretative Photography, Botanical, Threatened Species, Our Impact and Junior, as well as a Portfolio category for the best collection of six or more images.
Photographers go to great lengths to capture breathtaking images of the natural world, before their work goes on show at the South Australian Museum then tours to Western Australia and Tasmania.
A full gallery of the winning and finalist photographs can be viewed online on the ANZANG competition website.
About the Competition
The South Australian Museum has been running The Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year competition since 2009. Australian Geographic joined us as the competition’s principal sponsor in 2013, enhancing the reach of the competition and the conservation message we seek to share.
The competition and exhibition focuses on enhancing a general knowledge of the extraordinary bioregion of Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea by encouraging photography of its nature and wilderness to stimulate interest in its ongoing protection and conservation.
