ECHO Walking Festival

2018 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.


There're three categories for this year:

  • From the Track
  • Catch the Action
  • Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder


$50 for each category winner! Remember your phone or camera and get snapping. More details will be posted soon.
For quality, please send your originals or at a good resolution.
