Heritage SnAps Competition

Friday 6 July 2018 marked the 40 year anniversary of heritage protection through legislation in South Australia. The South Australian Heritage Act 1978 came into operation on 6 July 1978.  To celebrate this anniversary and to help more people become aware of our 2,300 State heritage-listed places, we ran the Heritage SnAps photo competition.

Winners of the Heritage Snaps Photo Competition were announced on Friday 31 August 2018.

You can view the winning entries below or visit the Adelaide Convention Centre (Foyer F) for the month of November to see the top 25 finalists and winners on display.
