Life and Light

The Life and Light Photography Competition 2018 is a competition that brings together amateur & professional 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 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.

20 Year Anniversary

The competition which runs as a partnership between NSW Local Land Services and Western Landcare NSW has now been running for 20 years!
