The Flora and Fauna Photo Competition began 10 years ago and was part of the annual Wildside Festival. The Festival wrapped up in 2015 but we decided to continue the annual competition.

For the purpose of continuity the theme this year has stayed the same, however, we now intend to change the theme each year.

Adult Fauna Winner - Caine Miller - "Bennett's Beach"

Adult Flora Winner - Adrienne Ingram

 "two bearded orchids watching"

Primary Fauna Section - Ales Poole

"very young pied oystercatcher"

Primary Flora Section - Beau Barris Jones

"Mini Micro World in my Back Yard"

 It will still be nature based to celebrate our diverse local environment and its associated lifestyle. For example one year it could be water, then summer or weather events.

The presentation of the canvas prints to the winners will be shown in the next edition of the MCM when the 2017 theme will be announced.

We would like to give special thanks to Christian Patteson for continuing the competition as well as a huge thank you to all the entrants for their contributions.
