Wandoan Photo Challenge 2020

Judging & Prizes

(scroll down)


An independent, professional photographer will do the judging. Each entry will only be identified by a number.

Seventeen prizes will be awarded over three areas of judging (see numbered points laid out below).

There is also a new Best Photographer Award (prize money $500) open to anyone who enters three or more photos. This award is about finding the best photographer, rather than the one best photo. It is decided by the judge and rewards consistent high quality and creativity over at least three photos entered by the one photographer. Winning it will be a real honour.

1. Category Prizes – the judge will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes in each of two categories (“Dogs, Dogs, Dogs” and “Small Town, Big Country”) for Open entrants and also for Young Photographers (12 prizes in total).

2. Local Entrants’ Prizes – the judge will award two prizes (regardless of category) to local Wandoan district entrants: one for Best Adult photo and one for Best Young Photographer photo. It is possible that one or both of these local winning photos could also win a category prize.

3. People’s Choice Prizes – the judge will choose her favourite 30 photos from all those entered and printed copies of these will be on display at the Wandoan Show. Anyone attending can vote for their personal favourite and these votes, taken together, will determine the People’s Choice 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes.
