Judging and Prizes
The ASZK committee will pick the two best photos in each category to show off at the annual conference, which will be held in Rockhampton.
Then all conference delegates can select their favourites! Best of each category will be displayed on the front cover of Thylacinus– the quarterly journal of the ASZK covering interesting updates in zookeeping from across the region.
Then, the People’s Choice (best of all categories) will earn its photographer honorary ASZK membership for a year!
Prints of the finalists may be auctioned off at the conference to assist with the Society’s ongoing objective of supporting the professional development of keepers in our region.
So get snapping, and let your photography earn you membership! Be sure to check Facebook to see some of the entries. And make sure you come to Rockhampton in May to take part in the judging!
