Eucalypt Australia Photography Competition 2024 Winner and Runners Up

Celebrating Urban Eucalypts

Congratulations to Guy Leung, winner of the 2024 Eucalypt Australia Photography Competition to celebrate Fascination of Plants Day on the 18th of May 2024.

With a theme of Celebrating Urban Eucalypts there was vigorous debate amongst the judges but we loved Guy Leung’s (@leunguy) delicate Jingymia Mallee (Eucalyptus synandra) with its soft colours framing the city of Perth as the sun is setting.  Guy submitted a number of impressive entries with his nighttime city scapes equally enthralling.

2nd place was taken by Julie Chamberlain’s (@juliechamberlain96) Lemon-Scented Gum (Corymbia citriodora), breaking down the harsh lines of a city building.  We were drawn by the mirrored colours and angles in this clever composition.

3rd place went to Sophie Xiang, another much-loved contributor (@sophie_wildflowers_photography), who captured this beautiful suburban moment during a morning walk.  We love how she has framed this everyday scene with the other-worldly structure of the Mottlecah (Eucalyptus macrocarpa).

Our thanks to all of our entrants who shared their creativity, talent, concerted effort and love of their urban eucalypts with us.

Celebrating Eucalypt Landscapes

Congratulations to Geoff Murray @geoffmurray55, winner of this 2022’s #NationalEucalyptDay Photography Competition: #CelebratingEucalyptLandscapes!

We were moved by the story of deep time told by Geoff’s photo of the Cider Gum graveyard in Tasmania, with the stars and southern lights in the background.

Congratulations must also go to @jen.fergy and for their cracking images of a tropical woodland along the Gibb River Road and Wandoo in the Great Western Woodlands.

Runner Up Colleen Hope

The photo was taken at Langi Ghiran State Park, on a misty morning in March. I was going out to sit with trees that are threatened with removal to make way for a freeway. Three trees, one which has been felled, are of significance to the first peoples of the area, and other concerned people. I arrived too late and access had been blocked by police and I was denied entry, so I went across the road and into the park and sat with the trees there as the morning mist was burned off by the warming day.

The name Langi Ghiran, Lar-ne-jeering in the local Djab Wurrung people’s language means ‘home of the Black Cockatoo’.  It has steep granite peaks and gentle sloping open woodlands. River Red Gums, Yellow Box and Candlebark trees are scattered through the woodlands, with Messmate, Manna Gums and Red Strinybark in the mountains and Yarra Gums along the waterways.

This Park is a special place for me, having grown up in the shadow of her beauty, and a place I regularly wander.
