The Austraflora Photography Competition

Austraflora is one of Australia’s largest online gardening communities!

Join the fun @ facebook.com/austraflora


Since 2012, Austraflora has run an annual Photography Competition. Photos of Australian Native Flora, Nature and Landscapes are entered via our Facebook page, to be judged by an expert horticultural and photography panel from both Austraflora and Canon, determining the top 12 winners. The winning 12 images feature in their very own month of the Austraflora Calendar, which can be purchased at the end of the year in time for Christmas. There’s lots of fantastic prizes that you can win along the way! Every year that the competition runs we are amazed by the talent of our entrants. We can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
