As an island continent, it’s only fitting that Australia is home to some truly stunning marine environments that dot both its perimeter and interior.

 

Renowned for its blend of vibrant blue waters, expansive underwater reefs, and vast freshwater oases amongst a thirsty landscape, Australia’s bodies of water and their marine inhabitants rank among the most stunning in the world.

There’s thus no getting around it: water plays an integral role in travel, whether that’s diving amongst manta rays off a secluded island, showering under a waterfall, or merely snapping the family cooling off in a pool.


To submit your photo entry for the Aquatic category, please ensure it adheres to the following criteria:

  • Must be within Australia – no overseas photography will be accepted for submission.
  • Must include water as the focal point – imagery must emphasise an aquatic environment, not merely a comprise a small element of the image
  • Must be taken with DSLR, Action Cam or similar – mobile phone photos will not be accepted. EXIF data will be required for shortlisted contestants.
  • Can be underwater, or outside the water – both underwater photography and photography oriented around aquatic features taken from outside the water are eligible for submission

You will be judged on your ability to capture features that best encapsulate the vibrancy, texturing, inhabitants of, and experiences to be had, in and around Australia’s waters.
