Local photo among comp winners
The winners of the fourth annual Spirit of the Bush photography competition, run by charity Rural Aid, have been announced and include a photograph captured at Allora.
Five of the twelve winners were captured in Queensland, four in Western Australia and three in New South Wales.
Rural Aid CEO John Warlters congratulated the photographers behind the 12 winning photos.
“Each photo tells a compelling story, whether it be of a successful crop, sunset silhouette or tender moment between working dog and owner,” Mr Warlters said.
“A powerful love of livestock and the land really shines through in this year’s pictures.
“Our annual competition always attracts hundreds of entries.
“Thank you to all those who sent their photos in to be judged and congratulations to our winners.”
The 12 photos will be used to create a 2024 calendar.
“Any profits from the calendar’s sale are directed back into Rural Aid’s range of award-winning programs,” Mr Warlters said.
“Rural Aid is proud to stand with our mates in the bush when they need it, whether that’s through a hay delivery, pre-paid visa card, or free counselling.”
The calendars are available for pre-order now through the website.
