This year’s competition was bigger than ever as Australia Zoo celebrates its 50th birthday.

The 2020 Competition had five exciting categories promoting wildlife conservation, being ‘Our Impact’, ‘Threatened Species’ and ‘Australian Conservation ‘Tails’’, ‘Crikey! Magazine Cover’ and ‘Crikey! Kids’.

Judging of the photographs was completed by an expert panel which included Wildlife Warrior Robert Irwin, Georgina Steytler, Harman Sing Heer and Kate Berry.

Robert Irwin said the judging panel were delighted with the quality of the submissions this year. “In an era of global change, nature is declining at an unparalleled rate and it has never been more important to promote the conservation of our wildlife and wild places. Through the Crikey! Magazine Photography Competition, it is our mission to showcase the natural world and inspire others to conserve it for future generations.”

“Each year thousands of photographers from around the world take part in the competition and the entries are spectacular – we are heartened by the number of Wildlife Warriors, who use photography to promote wildlife conservation,” Robert said.

“The museum has a close relationship with Australia Zoo with our scientists working with the team to undertake research on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula. We are excited to once again collaborate with Australia Zoo to showcase the stunning wildlife photographs that are the finalists as part of the 2020 Australia Zoo Crikey! Magazine Photography Competition,” said Queensland Museum Network CEO Dr Jim Thompson.
