Photographic royalty coming to Victor Harbor for “Prints of Whales” competition

The SA Whale Centre is excited to announce that its “Prints of Whales” photographic competition is back in 2014.

The competition commences on 1 July and is open to both professional and amateur photographers.

“As a number of whales make their way back to our coastline, it’s time to grab your camera and capture some of the magic of our beautiful region,” said City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp.

“We are not only looking for great photos of whales but also other local native wildlife that depicts the essence of the Fleurieu Peninsula.”

As a part of the competition, the SA Whale Centre will host renowned nature photographer Steve Parish, who will deliver a number of photography workshops, sharing his combined love of nature and photography.

“We are really excited to have Steve Parish come to the SA Whale Centre to share his expertise in a couple of master-classes for avid photographers on 4, 5 and 6 July,” said SA Whale Centre Coordinator Leah Pippos.

“The workshops provide avid photographers of all skill levels with a chance to learn tips and tricks from an expert – and we hope these skills will be used in our Prints of Whales competition!”

“There are a limited number of spaces for these workshops, so get in quick if you are interested and contact the SA Whale Centre today on 8551 0752.”

A full day workshop costs $150 per person (includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea). The Prints of Whales competition will run until 12 September 2014 and there is more than $3,000 in cash and prizes to be won.
