Judging and Prizes

The ASZK committee will pick the three best photos in each category.

Then ASZK members can select their favourites – attendees at this year’s conference will vote for their favourite photo in each category! The winner in each category will receive a complimentary one year ASZK membership (digital Thylacinus only)

Prints of the finalists may be auctioned off at the conference to assist with the Society’s ongoing objective of supporting the professional development of keepers in our region. The 12 best photos as selected by the ASZK committee will also be included in a calendar

So get snapping, and let your photography earn you membership! Be sure to check Facebook to see some of the entries. Please stay tuned for more information about voting for your favourite photos!­­
