The Capturing the Light competition has closed for entries; it is now open for members to vote, in each of the three competition levels. 

If you're unsure of how to vote, the Competition Voting page should help you.

Voting for this Current Competition will be open until 7 PM (AEST) Monday 28th August 2017.

Competition themes for the rest of 2017 are available here; the next competition, Birds Feeding, is scheduled to open for entries on 4th September.

The Committee Report in our June Newsletter announced an increase in the annual subscription for BirdLife Photography membership.  This new subscription structure will be staged over a two-year period, $15 pa in 2017 and increasing to $20 later in 2018.

The new subscription of $15 pa for BirdLife Photography will apply from the commencement of this renewal quarter (Quarter 3, 2017).

This will coincide with a range of other changes to BirdLife memberships being introduced by BirdLife Australia at that time.  As part of those changes, membership of BirdLife Photography will no longer be restricted to members of BirdLife Australia or their affiliated groups.

Please assist us with these changes by ensuring that the new subscription amount is forwarded to Supporter Services at BirdLife Australia if you are renewing your membership manually; if you renew on-line, the new amount will be updated and charged from early August.

Member voting for the Preening competition, which closed for entries on 12th June and for voting on 3rd July, has been analysed and the results for the top 5 images (or more, in the case of tied scores) in each category are listed here.  In line with many other bird/wildlife photo competitions, we present the results in the following manner: the Winner is the image which received the most votes; and we also show the next four highest placed images, rating them as Highly Commended if they received at least 90% of the votes for the winning image, and Commended for scores less than that.

Advanced Level – Preening

This category attracted 53 entries, from 18 photographers. 41 members voted, with the following result:

Congratulations to all these photographers for their quality images.

We have added a new gallery, Critique Gallery, to the site, to allow members to submit images that they would like to receive critical comment about.  Images submitted to this gallery will have a Comments section below the image information, where any member can submit comments about the image.  The comments are "threaded" - if you reply to a comment, the reply will appear under that comment, not as a separate new comment about the image.

We have developed some intial guidelines regarding the operation of this gallery, and we may revise these (and the manner in which the gallery operates) as we see how this gallery operates.  At present, we suggest:

  • When you submit an image to this gallery, you should include the reason why you would like feedback, and/or the problem(s) that you are experiencing, in the Comments field on the Submit Photo page.  If you are seeking advice on post-processing, please include the software that you are using for this.
  • Images submitted to this gallery will be published by a moderator before appearing, but the moderator will not reject an image for poor quality (as occasionally happens with images submitted to the New Images gallery).
  • Images published in the Critique Gallery will appear in the Latest Images column on the Home page on the day after publication.
  • Images submitted to this gallery will be counted against the daily submission limit of four images.  We also ask members to limit the number of images they submit to this gallery to not more than one per week.
  • Images submitted to this gallery will be removed from the site after a period of three months.  Before that time, the photographer may move the image to the New Images gallery, but if they do so the image will be re-assessed for acceptability by a moderator.  Comments on an image which is moved to the New Images gallery will no longer be visible.
  • Members offering critique comments should ensure that those comments will be of use to the photographer.  The commenting facility in the Critique Gallery is not intended for general comments such as "Great shot" or "Could be better".  Comments should at least address the issue(s) noted by the photographer in the image comments field; they may also address additional issues.
  • A photographer who has received feedback on an image in the Critique Gallery may submit a revised version of the image to the site, in either the Critique Gallery or the New Images gallery.  Previously critiqued images will not be accepted to any of our competition galleries.

There is a test image in the Critique Gallery, so that you can see how the commenting system works.  Please remember that you must be logged in to the website to submit comments on any image in the Critique Gallery.
