Wildlife Queensland has launched a new grant that aims to empower Australian amateur photographers to support community-led conservation projects.

The Wildlife Queensland Wayne Lawler Nature Conservation Photography Grant 2023 commemorates the work of Wayne Lawler, a highly respected nature photographer who dedicated his life to capturing the beauty of the natural world, inspiring many people to care about environmental conservation. His work was exhibited globally and earned him numerous awards. The grant’s objectives are to promote community-based nature conservation projects, enhance the applicant’s skill set in nature conservation photography, and assist with non-equipment costs of nature conservation photographic projects within Australia. By applying for the grant, amateur photographers stand a chance to receive $2000 in support of their photographic journey. This grant will provide a platform to share nature photos and gain exposure for their chosen conservation partner’s project.
The closing date for applications is Saturday 30 September 2023. Click here for more information.
