Seen a feral pest lately? Foxes, cane toads and wild boar are three invasive animals introduced by humans to this country. And efforts to eradicate them rely on people’s awareness of their presence.

The 2012 Feral Photos competition is a photography competition open to all members of the public, organised by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre.

We are looking for the best original photographs of pest animals, pest animal damage and pest animal control or monitoring activities in Australia. Colour, black and white, sepia-tone, remote-camera and panoramic photos will all be accepted. There are great prizes and the winning entries will be featured in the 2013 Feral Photos calendar. To see what you’re up against go to feral.org.au/feral-photos-2011/ and view entries from last year’s competition.

All entries (a maximum of three per person) can be provided in electronic or printed form, together with a completed entry form available at: www.invasiveanimals.com/feral-photos.

Email entries to [email protected] or mail to Feral Photos 2012 – Invasive Animals CRC, Annette Brown, Locked Bag 6006, Orange NSW Australia 2800.

Competition closes 30 September.
