A good macro photo brings the viewer in for an intimate look at details that could easily be missed when they’re merely one part of the big picture.
To submit your photo entry for the Macro category, please ensure it adheres to the following criteria:
- Must be within Australia – no overseas photos will be accepted for submission.
- Must not be heavily altered – images submitted to this category need to be entered “as is”, with no major modifications to lighting, colour/contrast, custom filters, etc.
- Must be taken with DSLR, Action Cam or similar – mobile phone photos will not be accepted. EXIF data will be required for shortlisted contestants.
- Macro Focused – The photo must be an extreme closeup of a subject or object.
You will be judged on your ability to capture unique lighting, angles, sharpness and depth of field of both close up nature, wildlife or objects in a way that has not yet been done before.
