Comments Comments

Early Bird entry pricing for Wilderness Photographer of the Year, presented by Mountain Designs, ends Sunday June 16!

This means if you get your entry in by June 16 you'll be saving $5 on the Standard Fee that begins Monday June 17.

As Great Walks editor Brent McKean says, the competition is offering great prizes and this Early Bird offer is a nice addition to an already attractive competition.

"It's always good to save some money by entering a competition early," says McKean. "Almost a 100 people have already entered so they know what's good for them!"

There are three categories in Wilderness Photographer of the Year: Places, People and Nature.

'Ancient Garden' by Shaun Pau. Runner-Up, Places category, Wilderness Photographer of the Year 2023.

PLACES: We're looking for your best landscape photos of wilderness areas. Think sweeping panoramas and dramatic horizons, spectacular coastlines and photogenic mountains.

PEOPLE: In this category we want to see photos of people experiencing wilderness areas. If there's one or more people in the frame, this is the category for you.

NATURE: Focus on flora and fauna. Think kangaroos and wallabies, birds, wildflowers and beetles, mushroom, orchids and much more. From the micro to the macro!

Images can be captured in wilderness areas anywhere around the world and the best images, including Winners, Runners-up and the Top 10 in each category will be featured in Great Walks magazine (February-March 2025), and on this website.

Winners and Runners-up in this year's competition will share in a prize pool of more than $19,500 including $5,000 cash and $14,500 in prizes from our sponsors Mountain Designs, Life's an Adventure, GME and Inspiration Outdoors.
