ECHO Walking Festival

2021 Photo Competition

Each year we encourage walkers to take their phones or cameras with them and capture the beauty of the bush, the people participating and the spirit of ECHO.


Must be a registered walker; no more than 5 entries per person; fun not a professional photographer.

ECHO Walking Festival judges winner and second place.

This year there is a People's Choice option to vote for a favourite photo(s) taken. These photos will be on the Echo Walking Festival Facebook page to vote on.

ECHO Walking Festival has the right to publish any photo submissions for promotional use on the ECHO Walking Festival website and any other advertising material.

Please email photos 'no more than 5 entries per person' for the photo competition to [email protected] with your name and the name of the walk you were on by 30th April 2021.


First prize $100, second prize $50 and people's choice $50. Remember your phone or camera and get snapping.

For quality, please send your originals or at a good resolution.
