ANZANG Nature is an organisation focused on the unique natural heritage of the bioregion of Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea – continents and islands cast from the great southern continent of Gondwana Land over fifty million years ago in which, due to long periods of isolation, remarkable flora and fauna have evolved.

ANZANG Nature highlights this extraordinary legacy by encouraging photography of the region’s nature and wilderness, raising public awareness of its natural heritage, and providing support for nature conservation in the region.

To achieve these aims ANZANG Nature conducts the annual photographic competition to bring to light the very best photographs of animals, plants and landscapes taken in the region. The competition is open to all photographers, amateur or professional, of any age or nationality. In 2007 1300 entries were received.
