Wild About Shellharbour

The first Wild About Shellharbour Nature Photography Competition was launched in March 2018 in celebration of Earth Hour. Local residents were invited to submit photos taken in the Shellharbour region that showcase native plants and animals, tell a story about connecting to our natural environment, or celebrate the beauty of our beaches and waterways.

Over 200 entries were received by the closing date in May. The quality of the entries was exceptionally high. You can view the 60 shortlisted images, including the winners and runner ups here.

In celebration of World Environment Day, an Awards Night was held at the Shellharbour Civic Centre in June 2018. The winners and runner ups for each theme and age category were awarded a total of $2,750 worth of prizes from Council’s plant nursery and the program sponsors PhotoMart and Stockland Shellharbour.
