Through the month of September, hundreds of locals help us showcase the beauty and biodiversity of the Gold Coast’s natural areas by sharing their nature snaps with us for a chance to win a prize! From our stunning coastal strip to our bush-clad hinterland and unique flora and fauna, there are endless options to explore and capture the natural side of our city.
There are 3 categories for judging which include landscape, flora and fauna. There is also a People’s Choice category, where the top 10 images (excluding the landscape, flora and fauna winners) will be posted on our Facebook page to receive votes (likes) from the public.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2022 NaturallyGC Instagram Photo Competition!

It's important for you to be considerate of the impact your images may have. All nature enthusiasts, professionals and admirers should minimise their footprint in nature. The following guidelines have been produced to guide you on ethical nature photography:
