Professional, emerging and junior photographers from around the world were invited to submit nature and wildlife photographs from the regions of Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea for the competition. Photographs could be submitted for a range of categories including Animal Behaviour, Animal Portrait, Botanical, Landscape, Threatened Species, Monochrome, Our Impact, Animal Habitat and a Junior category for those under 18 years of age.
This year the competition received an incredible 2219 entries, no doubt leading to a challenging job for the judges, Tui De Roy, Justin Gilligan and Glenn Mckimmin, whose task it was to narrow the field down and choose just 75 finalists.

Inspiration has been taken from the ocean, the rainforest, and even the icy Antarctic landscape, with the entries this year covering a wide range of subjects from endangered green sea turtles. to emperor gum moths, termites and even an adorable baby wombat cocooned in its mother's pouch. Landscape images include a lightning storm, a spectacular frozen wave and stunning waterfalls to name just a few.
