Submit your photos for our WildTracker Exhibition

To celebrate National Science Week 2024, we’re hosting a WildTracker Exhibition in Launceston and Hobart, showcasing some of the exceptional camera trap images collected by WildTracker citizen scientists and the TLC community.

Unlike traditional art exhibitions, where image quality and composition are key, we’re seeking camera trap photos that depict rare or threatened species, unique behaviours, humorous moments, or that tell a story of nature that is special to you.

C[P] R1S1 T07C:P2871 B1 M7

We will select the best submissions from four themes:

  1. Behaviour: Think special interactions between animals, such as maternal care, unusual partnerships, conflict and parasitism, or individuals just doing something weird and wonderful.
  2. Threatened Species: Your most beautiful, intriguing and epic photos of Tasmania’s threatened wildlife including devils, quolls, wedgies and barred bandicoots. Or perhaps you have a photo that depicts a threat to our native wildlife?
  3. Comedy: Any camera trap photo that has made you giggle!
  4. Firsts: Share the first record of a species on your property or to your local region, or images that introduced you to a species for the first time.

All successful entrants will receive a printed copy of their photo, and category winners announced at the Exhibition’s opening night will receive a special gift. Submit your photos with a brief description of their significance and your connection to the animal subject here.

Good luck and happy camera trapping!
