Finalists and Winner Announcement

Southern Tasmania Autumn Photography Competition: 

The 2024 Southern Tasmania Autumn Photography Competition has concluded. It showcased the region’s breathtaking beauty through the lens of hundreds of talented photographers. Over 1,000 entries were received via the #autumntasmania24 hashtag.

The standard of entries was extremely high, making selecting the finalist images very difficult. Hundreds of images were worthy of inclusion, but after careful deliberation, the Judges settled on a handful that reflected southern Tasmania during the autumn season.

The winning image by Carmel Glendhill uniquely represents southern Tasmania. It shows the end of the seasonal cycle for Tasmania’s only endemic deciduous tree, the Fagus. The photograph is so uniquely Tasmanian that it may be impossible to take anywhere else on the planet. Congratulations to Carmel on your winning entry.

Congratulations to our finalist photographers and to all who entered the competition. The standard was incredibly high and represented southern Tasmania beautifully. 

Destination Southern Tasmania would like to thank The Tasman and your incredible team for supplying the wonderful prize for this year’s event.
