Great Walks’ Wilderness Photographer of the Year presented by Mountain Designs has opened today and it’s our biggest comp yet with almost $20k worth of prizes!

Now in its fourth year, the competition is open to Australian and New Zealand photographers and offers a prize pool worth 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.

“The success of the last three comps have shown bushwalkers love to take a great pictures,” says Great Walks editor Brent McKean. “Every year the quality of images just gets better and our judges always have their work cut out choosing their favourites.”

There are THREE categories this year: Places, People and Nature.

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

Over the coming weeks we’ll announce this year’s judges and they’ll offer their top tips on how to take a winning photo so look out for that - but in the meantime go through your photos to see if you have one or more worthy photos for the competition – but remember the image/s must have been captured on or after 1 January 2022.
