Heritage SnAps Photography Competition 2021

Share with us a photo of your favourite South Australian State Heritage Place for your chance to win one of a number of prizes.

There are 2,302 State heritage-listed places in South Australia, but not everyone knows about these places, why they are significant and where to find them.

Your photographs will help celebrate our State Heritage Places.

The winner from each category will be awarded a certificate and an exciting prize to recognise their winning entry, while the overall winner and the people’s choice award winner will both win an exciting prize!

How to enter

There are four categories you can enter:

  • Category 1 – Maritime Heritage coastal and riverine (includes Shipwrecks and Heritage listed lighthouses, jetties, obelisks, wharfs and boatsheds).
  • Category 2 – Heritage visits (featuring people enjoying our State Heritage Places).
  • Category 3 – Professional and Edited photos of State Heritage Places
  • Category 4 – Young talent (under 18) taking photos of State Heritage Places (encouraging school age kids to learn about our Heritage).

To enter:

  • select which category you wish to enter
  • upload your photo of a State Heritage place
  • tell us what the subject of the photo is
  • tell us the date of the photo

Each individual can enter a maximum of 3 photographs across all categories. For instance, you may like to enter three (3) photos in Category 1 or you may decide to spread your three photos out across multiple categories.

Please refer to the South Australian Heritage Database to find a State Heritage Place to photograph.
