By the close we received more than 3,100 entries
We have been overwhelmed by the response to the competition and thank everyone who entered. By the close we have received more than 3,100 entries - and almost 1,500 came in the last 3 days. We have been flat out processing them and getting the judging underway. The task is a big one for our judges and they won't be done selecting finalists and winners until early November. We will let you know the results then and where you can see the chosen photos.
Some of you may be contacted sooner if you have been chosen by our judges as finalists as we'll need to get some more information about your entries and check compliance with the competition rules.
For now, please accept our sincere thanks for your interest and support, knowing that you have contributed to a brighter future for Australia's birds. We're as excited as anyone to see which entries our judges select and will let you know as soon as we can.
