Get Professional Feedback!

We have three AIPP Grand Masters of Photography judging our competition because we want you to receive the benefit of genuine, professional experience. And we keep the same judges each year so you have some consistency of judging and commentary. Plus, every entry gets a short comment to help you improve your work.

Worldwide Audience

Our entrants come from the Americas, Europe, Russia, Asia and Oceania. So while we're an Australian based competition, now in its 12th year, we welcome international participation!

Every 5th Entry Is Free

Entries are still just AUS $20 each (approximately US $15, depending on the exchange rate). However, best of all is for every four photos you enter, you get one entry free! So this is why we say every fifth entry is free!

  2. Classic Landscapes
  3. Creative Flair
  4. Exotic Travel
  5. Incredible Sport
  6. Revealing Nature

Entrants from 2016 and 2017 can use their existing details to log in. Entrants from earlier competitions will need to create a new account as we have a new judging system.
