‘Images of Jirdarup 2020’ Photography Competition

The Friends of Jirdarup Bushland’s inaugural 'Images of Jirdarup 2020' photography competition was designed to raise awareness of our small patch of urban bushland and encourage artistic expression. The community embraced the challenge and flocked to visit Jirdarup Bushland, many for the first time. Keen photographers of all ages and abilities submitted their glorious images of Jirdarup’s natural wonders.

The exhibition in November 2020 at the Kent Street Gallery was an exciting and diverse display of photographs that attracted a record-breaking 500+ visitors and 330 votes in the People’s Choice Award.

Congratulations to all of the 2020 winners! See below for the full list.

Thank you to our sponsors for making these great prizes possible. Most of all, thank you to all the competition entrants for helping to share with the wider community just how special the Jirdarup Bushland Precinct is for us all.
