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 – “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!

"Taking a walk to stretch the legs in between shearing and I stumbled across this amazing tree. Some have suggested it marks a special site. Others think perhaps an aboriginal ring tree. Another, a simple Bimble Box Tree with overlapping branches. Whatever it is, I’ve never seen a noose like branch or twisted tree like it" - 📸 Noona NSW, this entry is titled 'Circle of Life'.

"At three weeks of age, our second son visited our station for the first time. Safe in dads arms, he had his first taste of a outback sunset whilst his two year old brother wanted to show him all the wonders of the land. The simple things make captured moments like this so special: wildflowers, sunset, animals and a father with his two most precious things, his boys." - 📸 Noona NSW, this entry is titled 'Next Generation'.

"Checking fence lines at sunset, there’s always time to stop and pick wildflowers. Our two year old son already has a connection to the land. He not only appreciates nature, has a true love of animals great and small but wants to help dad on the station at every chance. Raising our next generation of farmers, one sunset at a time" - 📸 Noona NSW, this entry is titled 'Sunset wildflowers'.
