Wandoan Photo Challenge 2023

Rules & Guidelines

♦ This competition is open to all – amateurs and professionals, adults and children, locals and people from afar.

♦ All photographs must be original work and be taken and owned by the photographer. Finalists may be required to prove the authenticity of their image by providing the original RAW or JPEG capture and, if requested, also the immediately preceding or subsequent photographs.

♦ Where photographic entries are of people, or property, not related to or owned by you or your family, permission must be obtained from the relevant individual(s) or businesses. If the person is a minor, consent must be obtained from a parent or guardian. By entering a photograph you are agreeing to these terms and conditions and confirming you have obtained permission. This is your responsibility.

♦ Only images taken within a 100 km radius of Wandoan will be eligible for entry (see map).

♦ For Open entrants (over 18) there are four categories (“Dusk till Dawn”, “Wild n Free”, “Drone” and “Small Town, Big Country”). For Young Photographers (18 and under) there is one (“Small Town, Big Country”). All entries are to be submitted online and in JPEG format.

♦ Photographs must have been taken from March 25th, 2023 and entries close on 15th March, 2024. 

♦ There is no limit to how many photos each photographer can enter.

♦ There are no restrictions on digital enhancements and B&W photos are fine.

♦ Where and when each entry was taken must be noted on the entry form together with a caption of up to 10 words (the judge will not see this caption, it’s solely for display).

♦ All prizewinners (except People’s Choice winners) will be determined by an independent judge. People’s Choice winners will be decided by popular vote on a selection of the best entries as determined by the independent judge. These decisions will be final and no discussions or correspondence will be entered into.

♦ Wandoan Photo Challenge, the Wandoan Show Society and Senex Energy retain the right to freely use images for promotional purposes but otherwise the copyright of any entered image remains solely with the photographer. Where possible entrants will be credited when photographs are used, however this is not guaranteed. If any party wishes to use any image for other purposes, they will be put in contact with the photographer to see if an agreement can be reached.

♦ The promoter is the Wandoan Show Society Inc., ABN 72 110 864 588.

♦ The entry fee per photograph is $22. Entries in the Young Photographers section are $11.  Young Photographers may also enter the open competition (and hence be eligible for the bigger prizes) but to do so must create a separate entry and pay the $22 fee.
