Top GeoShot 2012

The winners of the Top Geoshot 2012 Photographic Competition were announced on Wednesday 17 October.

Top Geoshot is an event which takes place in the run up to and during Earth Science Week. The competition asked for a photograph that captures the essence of Earth science in Australia.

Geoscience Australia received 191 entries for this competition from all over Australia. The photographs were judged on quality, creativity, aesthetics and fit with the “Earth Science” theme.

The quality of work submitted was exceptional and their display in the foyer has become quite a conversation piece for visitors to Geoscience Australia.

An Overall Winner, a ‘People’s Choice’ and 11 additional winners were selected, including one from the Student category.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who entered this year’s competition.

Keep those cameras at the ready for Top GeoShot 2013!
