2022 Photo Competition Winners!
Presenting the winners and runner ups of the annual South Australian Ranger Association photo competition, congratulations to all and thank you to everyone who entered. The competition is a wonderful showcase of the amazing scenery our protected area workers have the privilege to work and holiday in!
Over 100 photos were entered and photos were exhibited at the Annual Migration event in Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park in August 2022. Winners were chosen based on the most popular photos voted by the attendees of the conference in a ballot and were announced at the Director's Dinner of the migration. Our overall winner James Tomlinson was awarded the grand prize of 2 nights accomodation at Grindell's Hut in Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges NP. All other category winners and runner ups will receive special SARA merch prizes including calendars!
If you love these photos as much as we all do - look out for special SARA merchandise showcasing these pics - especially the 2023 SARA Calendar.
