Birds of Albury

Enter our community-based photography exhibition on Albury's local birdlife.

Entries: Due by Monday 25 March 2024

Albury is a haven for a rich variety of Australian native birds much loved and admired by our community. In conjunction with the Birds of Australia Storybox exhibition the LibraryMuseum is celebrating our local birdlife with a community-based exhibition that features your photography of local birds. The exhibition is taking submissions from residents within a 50km radius of Albury.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to vote for their choice of winning entry.

All participants are invited to the launch event on Saturday 13 April, where prizes will be awarded in following categories: best photo taken by entrant under 18, best overall photo, best photo of a threatened species and best “in motion” action shot. We are also very grateful for the support of Gardens for Wildlife Albury Wodonga who have sponsored a special prize category “Best photograph taken in a residential garden”, the winner of this category will receive a $50 Peard’s Wodonga voucher. BirdLife Australia are also proud to sponsor a prize for “best photo of a bird on a farm within 100km of Albury”, the winner of this category will receive a $100 gift voucher from Our Native Garden Nursery and receive a ‘Birds on Farms – Bird Nerd Resource Pack’, full of helpful bird identification information.

The launch event will also include a presentation from BirdLife Australia who will share with us their birds on farms work and how this is contributing to the protection of local species. Audience members will also get the opportunity to learn about how they can also get involved in Birdlife Australia projects.
