Congratulations to our 2020 winners of the Macarthur Nature Photography Competition!

About the competition

In a world seemingly overloaded by a daily avalanche of images, through Instagram, Facebook and television, a striking image can still cut through the clutter of it all, revealing to us something in our worlds that we have been missing.

The Macarthur councils will once again host the highly anticipated Macarthur Nature Photography Competition (MNPC) and encourage our community to enter their most striking, engaging and enticing images of local native flora, wildlife and natural scenery taken from within the Macarthur area!

2021 competition dates

Competition opens Monday 13 September 2021
Competition closes Friday 15 October 2021
Awards ceremony Thursday 11 November 2021

Stay tuned for more details to come.
