Director Rich Gilmore said it was a great opportunity to showcase what Australians saw in their environment.

“We’re all surrounded by nature every day and this competition is a great chance for people to capture this beauty and properly appreciate it,” he said.

“You don’t have to be a photographer by trade to have a good eye; anybody can capture the perfect shot.”

The winners will have their work featured online and in Australian magazine Wild. Entries close November 4.
