Life and Light Photo Competition 2021 – Theme: Appreciating the Little Things

The Life and Light Photography Competition 2021 is a competition that brings together amateur photographers from across the Western Region to capture this wonderful outback landscape of ours. The competition has been running annually for over 20 years now and has seen some of the best photographs and photographers that the Western region has to offer. By capturing their local landscape, people, Life and Light the competition gives amateur photographers a chance to showcase what they love about our region.

This year Western Landcare NSW called upon the people of the Western Region to have their say on what the 2021 Life and Light Photo Competition theme should be –ย “Appreciating the Little Things”. However a new theme isn’t the only new thing to the competition this year. Six new categories have been introduced,

  • Kangaroos in our Landscape.
  • Native Flora and Fauna.
  • Cultural Heritage.
  • Livestock and Farming.
  • People and Places.
  • Junior (16yrs and younger), and,
  • People’s Choice.

All photos must be taken in the Western Region and must have been taken after January 1st 2020.

So with all that said… Happy Snapping! Get your photos in at the Life and Light Photography Competition Website, or help out your favourite images by giving them a Like on Facebook!

"I have been obsessed with the changing nature of the Outback landscape since the water first came over the Brewarrina weir last February. This photo was taken yesterday, out at the Four Mile camping reserve. Iโ€™m still in disbelief when I really think about the changes over the last year and how miraculous they have been. We are living in a totally different landscape. ๐Ÿ˜Š" - ๐Ÿ“ธ Brewarrina NSW, this entry is titled 'Appreciating the Colour Green'.

"Brad & Clem, waiting for the water to come on the morning of February 16th 2020. They are sitting on the weir that, by the end of that same day would be gushing with water and providing a play area for very happy children. People said they had not seen the river like it was on the end of that day for seven years" - ๐Ÿ“ธ Brewarrina NSW, this entry is titled 'Reflecting on Water'.
