We are very grateful for the contribution....

Australian Geographic

Principal Sponsor

Australian Geographic has partnered with the South Australian Museum to bring the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year to a wider audience. Natural history photography is one of the pillars of the renowned Australian Geographic Journal and this competition promotes excellence in this field.

Photography is one of the fastest-growing hobbies in Australia today and provides a compelling reason to get out and go travelling around our beautiful country and others in our amazing bioregion. It promotes learning about flora, fauna and geology and fosters an appreciation of the special and often fragile nature of our wild places and creatures, something that we encourage at every opportunity.

We are proud to be associated with a competition that shares those values and aims and we hope to raise the profile of, and increase participation in, this prestigious event over the next few years.

Presenting Partner

Coral Expeditions is the Australian pioneer of small ship expedition cruising with over three decades of experience exploring the Great Barrier Reef, the Kimberley Coast, Cape York and Arnhem Land, Tasmania’s Wilderness Coast, Papua New Guinea and beyond.

These are exciting times and we are thrilled with the opportunity to work closely with the South Australian Museum, Australian Museum and Australian Geographic and be a part of the annual Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition.

Our company has strong roots set in embracing the spirit of nature conservancy and respect. The expedition experience is all about discovery, and there is a very special connection that is made in those personal moments in which nature chooses to reveal. We have a great respect and admiration for nature photographers and their ability and commitment to capture these moments to share, educate and inspire us all. Our strong desire is to help promote and strengthen the connection between humans and the wonders of our natural world well into the future.
