My Favourite Place Photo Story Competition

This year the North East CMA is calling for people to portray through an original photo, their connection to the environment of the region.

  • Favourite Native Tree
  • Favourite Natural Place
    - Eg specific sites in Parks, forest, reserve, wetland, waterway
  • Favourite Environmental Project
