The slideshow above is a selection of shots from the 2021 competition.
In this space we’ll generally focus on photos that didn’t win a prize but, as you’ll see, that doesn’t mean they’re not great shots.
Most of this first selection are from the Top 30.
To see all of the 2021 entries see below.
The slideshow of 200 entries from 2021 can be accessed by clicking on this link which takes you directly to the slideshow within OneDrive. It’s a big file (361 MB) so it takes a while to load.
Once open it automatically starts going through the slides which are arranged by class and category, starting with Open class / Work – General. Each change of class and category is marked by a transition slide.
At the bottom there’s a slide counter and little left and right arrows to move on more quickly or move back. You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard.
By clicking on “Start Slide Show” towards the top right, it expands to full screen. Here too, you can use your keyboard arrow keys to move on more quickly or go back. Press “Esc” to exit full screen.
The Wandoan Photo Challenge in 2022 is all about “Play” with two categories, “Adults at Play” and “Kids at Play”. In addition, “Small Town, Big Country” returns as the third category for all “non-play” entries.
Each category will offer $1000 of prize money ($500 for 1st, $300 for 2nd and $200 for 3rd). Anyone entering three or more photos across all three categories will be in the running for the Best Photographer Award.
Play doesn’t need much explanation. Your photos could be amusing, off the wall, unexpected or even serious. After all, for some “play” is a very serious business indeed. Formal, informal, teams and groups or just intensely personal, there aren’t any rules.
For Young Photographers, instead of the standard “Small Town, Big Country” category, in 2022 their single category will be “Play”. So, they can capture the oldies making fools of themselves or show off all the crazy things youngsters get up to. Or both.
Even more than usual, we look forward to seeing your entries.

P.S. Pretty much everything else in the competition stays the same. All the details are on our website.
We’re delighted that Paula Heelan has agreed to be our judge again in 2022.
The Judge’s Top 30 and winners are on display at the Wandoan Cultural Centre.
Once again, our heartfelt thanks to Senex.
