Student photographers from nearby Kent Street Senior High School toured Jirdarup Bushland recently, keen to capture some winning pics for the Junior Category of the Images of Jirdarup 2021 photography competition. Last year, five talented students from the school made it to the finals and one of the group, Sav Noble, took out first prize for his glorious photo of Macrozamia cones (titled ‘Foney Fungi’). These and other winning photos from 2020 can be viewed on our website https://www.friendsofjirdarupbushland.org.au/2020-images.
To enter the Beaver Tree Services Junior (<18) Photographer category, photos must be taken in Jirdarup Bushland and can be of any subject. First prize in all categories is $400 cash and $100 for the runner up.
A big thanks goes to @Beaver Tree Services for sponsoring the Junior category again this year. Since 1979, the trusty Beaver teams have been tending to trees and vegetation in Jirdarup Bushland Precinct, and around the Town of Victoria Park. They are fully qualified and insured and provide the full range of tree services. As their motto says, ‘You can Leave it to the Beaver!’
Our photo features Kent St SHS students in 2020 during their visit to the Images of Jirdarup exhibition at the Kent St Gallery. Good luck for this year!
There are still places available in our Jirdarup Nature Photography Workshops www.friendsofjirdarupbushland.org.au/news-and-events this coming Saturday featuring @daveditchburnphotography and sponsored by @PerthNRM, dedicated to protecting and restoring damaged Landscapes. Many thanks to PerthNRM, who are also sponsoring the Landscape/Habitat category in our Images of Jirdarup 2021 photography competition (@www.fojb.org.au).
