Photography Competition 2020

Back by Popular demand!

Following the success of our Photography classes last year, we have improved and further expanded the categories available for 2020 in our Amateur Photography Competition.

With the New Year underway, now is the perfect time to set yourself some new photography challenges and push your creative imagination in our Fun, Free Photography Competition! We’ve chosen a broad range of categories from nature, urban environment, animals, aquatics and sports to suit photographers of any level.

Competitions and classes

We run three competitions throughout the year (see our Events page for more info) – Spring, Summer and Autumn. Everyone is welcome to enter any or all of the competitions (Shows) throughout the year.

At each Show, exhibits will be judged against all other exhibits in each category with a 1st (3 Points), 2nd (2 Points) and 3rd prize (1 Point) being awarded in each class. The Judge is independent and a local photography expert. Points are accumulated across classes and competitions for each exhibitor. At the end of year (Autumn Show) the exhibitor with the highest number of points wins the “Grigg Cup.”
