Get snapping to be in the running for more than $10,000 prize money of offer at the Kimberley Photographic Award 2017.
The sixth annual Kimberley Photographic Awards 2017 is officially open for entry.
Amateur and professional photographers can enter images that capture the Kimberley across 10 categories.
The categories will be hotly contested with Shire of Derby / West Kimberley president Elsia Archer stating the competition continued to “grow in size and prestige every year”.
"Photography is a popular hobby for many and the Shire believes this award provides a wonderful opportunity for photographers to showcase their talents,” she said.
More than $10,000 prize money is on offer across all categories with the overall winner collecting $2000 plus a flight across the Bungle Bungles and Lake Argyle with Aviair.
Award categories include Kimberley landscapes, character portraits, creative/ altered reality, black and white, flora, fauna, youth, open non-Kimberley residents, people's choice and the Smartphone Snap & Send.
Non-Kimberley residents can enter the Smartphone Snap & Send and open non-Kimberley residents categories and are eligible for the overall winner and people’s choice awards. Kimberley residents are eligible to enter all categories bar the open non-Kimberley residents section.
Our own Travel editor Stephen Scourfield will be heading up the judging, lending his passion for the Kimberley region as well as his photographic prowess.
