Capture the Wheatbelt

Posted in: 

How do YOU picture the Wheatbelt?

Is it brilliant native wildflowers, wise old gumtrees, or amazing night skies? Is it vibrant farm machinery, stunning fields of canola, or the spectacle of all night seeding? Perhaps it’s the people who live and work here, making up the region’s unique social tapestry?

However you picture it … if you’re a budding photographer under the age of 35 years currently living in the WA Wheatbelt, we’d love to experience how YOU view and interpret our diverse region.

This year Wheatbelt NRM’s Youth Environment Photography Competition has four main themes:

  • Paddock trees – Capture the majesty of these iconic and essential trees
  • Flora and Fauna – Capture the Wheatbelt’s amazing plants and animals
  • Faces of the Wheatbelt – Capture the diversity, character and resilience of our Wheatbelt
  • Sense of place – Capture your connection and character of the Wheatbelt landscape.

The overall winner will receive an iPad mini, or $500 cash. Plus, the winner in each theme will receive $100.

So, what are you waiting for? Our vibrant region is full of beauty just waiting for YOU to capture it! #CaptureTheWheatbelt
