Awards | Sunshine Coast Environment Photography Awards



The annual Sunshine Coast Environment Photography Awards have been & gone again this year with another great round of entries & some seriously good images were shortlisted as finalists. This year saw the introduction of the ‘Human Interaction With The Environment’ category which, for me, perfectly ties into my rock climbing photography so I set out to find the right frame to submit…

The below image was selected as the winner of the ‘Human Interaction With The Environment’ category out of a whopping 665 entries!

“In the human interaction with natural and built environment category, Nathan McNeil’s work ‘The Big Whipper’ grabs your attention straight away. It beautifully captures the relationship between the environment and humans. The leap of faith symbolises the spirit of the Sunshine Coast population –  risk takers, nature lovers, limit pushers.”

– Richard O’Leary – Finalist Judge & Editor of My Weekly Preview
