Tasmania’s iconic ferry service, the Spirit of Tasmania, has launched an amateur photography competition to capture the beauty of Tassie – and with the prizes being offered, you could be the big winner.

The Spirit of Tasmania is sponsoring a photography competition for amateur snappers whose photos capture the beauty of Tasmania.

The Capture the Spirit collection will be showed on an online gallery, and Tassie-based photographer Geoff Murray, Philip Lennard of the Australian Photography Association and Charles Griplas, Spirit of Tasmania’s CEO, will judge the competition, with the winners receiving a range of digital cameras and holidays, valued at more than $8000.

Tasmanians and Australians alike will get to choose two of the winners via online voting with the Tasmania’s Choice Award and People’s Choice categories.

There will also be a Best Kids’ Photo category for ages 12 and under, and a Save the Tasmanian Devil Program charity category called My Favourite Tassie Devil (the Save the Tasmanian Devil program is the official response to the Devil Face Tumour Disease, which has caused a major population decline among the species.)

Nominations are open until November 30, so get out your camera and get snapping!
