$24,000 up for grabs in nature photography competition

NORTHERN Rivers photographers have just over a week to enter their best landscape, habitat or wildlife photos in the Saved Nature Photography Competition.

Winning entrants will share in $24,000 in cash prizes and have their work exhibited at the International Union for Conservation of Nature's World Parks Congress in November.

The entries should tell a story of a national park, marine park or other protected area and inspire others to explore and help save these precious places.

Photographers can chose from three categories - parks, people and planet, and enter as a professional, enthusiast, student (aged 13-18) or social.

International award winning Lennox Head photographer Craig Parry said competitions were a great way to gain exposure and feedback.

"It's a fantastic way to build your profile as a photographer," Mr Parry said.

He has already entered his landscape photograph Life and Death - an aerial shot taken moments after fire swept through the Broken Head Nature Reserve in 2013 - in the Saved Nature competition.

"It looks destructive, but it was started by lightning so it's just nature's way of regenerating an area."

Online entries and more on the competition are at Saved website.
