South Australian Heritage Council Chair Keith Conlon said the annual photography competition continues to grow in popularity each year with a number of great prizes up for grabs simply by sharing a photo of a South Australian State Heritage Place or Area.

“Heritage SnAps is about showcasing our 2,300 wonderful State Heritage Places and 17 State Heritage Areas,” Mr Conlon said.

“Just by entering the competition, you will be helping to promote and celebrate our State’s heritage.

“It’s also a great opportunity for people to learn why these heritage places are significant and so the education potential is enormous.

“This year we’d love to see people included in the photos – people out and about enjoying our wonderful heritage sites.”

The four categories in this year’s competition are:

  1. Maritime and coastal Heritage (including photos of shipwrecks!)
  2. State Heritage places to visit
  3. Professional and edited
  4. Young Talent (open to school age entrants under the age of 18 as at 1 July 2021)

Entries close Friday, 15 October 2021.

The Adelaide Botanic Gardens Restaurant and Café is the proud major sponsor of this year’s competition.
