The Australian Geographic 2014 ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year competition is now open, with further details and submissions being accepted here: http://www.anzang.samuseum.sa.gov.au/
Although last year Raoul Slater of Queensland won the Botanical category for his photograph of inkcaps titled "Fungi in Mist" (see below or http://www.anzang.samuseum.sa.gov.au/gallery ), fungi have rarely featured in this competition in the past. However, we know that quite a few Fungimappers are also very talented photographers so we encourage you to submit your best and be recognised for your skills at showing how beautiful, fascinating and strange Kingdom Fungi can appear!
Amateur and professional photographers of all ranges can compete and there are cash prizes for winners and runners-up.
If you need any advice on the identification of a fungus featured in your photographs, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our experienced field naturalists and mycological experts will try to assist.
Entries close on Friday 7 March 2014 at 5pm ACDT.
Best of luck!
