Congratulations to the 2021 winners!

Drumroll please… we’re wild with excitement to show you the five winning images from the Wild About Lane Cove photo competition we ran last month. 

A huge thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to those who photographed these winning images.

Photo Challenge

Take a photo of any of the following from a local nature space in the Lane Cove LGA, upload them to your Instagram account and tag @lanecovecouncil, #WildAboutLaneCove and the location to go in the draw to win great prizes! Each photo is classified as a single entry – you can enter up to ten times.

How many of these natural features or suggestions can you find and photograph in your local park or bushland area?

  • A repeating or decorative design
  • Something in the sky
  • Something in motion
  • A splash of colour
  • A big tree
  • Reflection in water
  • Shadows or play of light
  • Something camouflaged
  • A wild critter
  • Create a Miniature World (using a figurine)

Being in nature can help ease our anxieties and stress so if you can spend some time outside, join Council's photo challenge this April. Get the kids involved too and reap the benefits of feeling happier and healthier as a result of spending time in nature.

Remember to keep yourself and others safe by following current Government advice on social distancing and self-isolation.
