Reef Check Australia Photography Competition 2007

Reef Check Australia is holding its first photography contest in celebration of Australian Biodiversity Month this September.

The aim is “to showcase the Australian public’s ‘vision’ of the value of our coral reefs and global threats that they currently face,” according to organizers.

These “values” include social activities and recreational pastimes such as diving, snorkeling, sailing and fishing, traditional cultural activities for many indigenous Australians and commercial ventures such as tourism and gathering seafood.

The Australian coastline is home to some of the most pristine coral reef environments; Australia’s coral reefs have global ecological, social and economic value. The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) World Heritage Area is the world’s largest coral reef ecosystem that extends for more than 2000km along Queensland’s coastline. It is home to hundreds of coral species, thousands of fish species.

The Reef Check Australia photography competition includes a number of submission categories that give the Australian public the opportunity to show the world how they ‘value’ coral reefs both now and into the future. The range of prizes include underwater cameras, resort accommodation, diving / snorkeling / sailing trips to the GBR and coral conservation kits.
