Restoration in Focus 

At Landcare Tasmania we are welcoming in the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030 with a Landcare Tas Photo Competition, based on key areas of restoration focus.

The competition is open to all photographers; professional, amateur and aspiring regardless of your home base as long as the photograph was taken in Tasmania. Entrants under 18 years of age require written permission from a parent or legal guardian through the parental consent form.

Our aim of the competition is to engage photographers and their communities, highlight amazing places and things in our home state, and draw attention to the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
