Photography enthusiasts are encouraged to capture their stunning images of the region’s beautiful landscapes, plants and animals in the Macarthur Nature Photography Competition.

The competition is hosted by Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly councils and there’s $3,000 in prizes up for grabs.

“We’re lucky to live in a region that is home to an abundance of bushland, filled with native plants and animals,” Cr Greiss said.

“The Macarthur Nature Photography Competition is highly anticipated every year and it’s always great to see the amazing pictures photographed by talented local people and students,” he said.

Competition categories include Australian Plants, Australian Animals, People Helping the Environment, and Water in the Landscape.

“The best part of it is that you don’t have to be a professional photographer or own a flash camera. Simply take out your smartphone and have some fun in the area,” Mayor of Camden Therese Fedeli said.

“I look forward to seeing what our community comes up with.”

There are three age group categories:

  • Primary School: 12 years and under
  • High School: 13-18 years
  • Open Section: 18 years and over

Entries for the Macarthur Nature Photography Competition will close 5pm Friday 7 October.
