Australia's Wide Open Spaces

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

Show us the wide open spaces that define Australia to many overseas people. They may be plains of sand or grass. They may contain a tree or two, or even the odd lonely building. What we don’t want to see are macros, close-ups or images crowded with trees, buildings or anything else. Mountains in the distance are fine. Think isolation and you’ll be on the right path.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for the best image.

Rewards & Prizes

The first four placegetters will have their winning images featured on the group’s home page for two weeks and their image will qualify for entry in the next Superchallenge.

Additional Information

Any image that isn’t in the group or not meeting the challenge brief will be removed. While every endeavour is made by the hosts to ensure that all images available for voting are in the group at the time mistakes will inevitably happen from time to time. Any image not in the group at challenge end will be disqualified and the image with the next highest vote count will take its place. Should a tie occur the Challenge Host, Susan Adey, will decide the winner.

Have fun!
