There are three categories in Wilderness Photographer of the 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.

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, mushrooms and orchids. From the micro to the macro!
