Have an awesome photo? Want to win amazing prizes?
We are pleased to once again be running the ASH Photo Competition as part of the 2018 Kindilan Conference. This year’s conference is a joint meeting held in conjunction with the Society for Research on Amphibians and Reptiles in New Zealand (SRARNZ).

Herpetological Heroes
Photos of herpetologists doing herpetological things.

Study Species
Photos of the very beasts on which we (the general we) work. Camera trap images are welcomed.

Caught in the Spotlight
We’re also keen to showcase some of the more interesting photos people have captured on camera traps. If we get enough submissions of this ilk, we’ll house them in their own category.

Entries can be submitted through this Google Forms page: https://goo.gl/forms/7TbLqedNkN4GoB3K3

You’ll need a Google account to use that form. If you don’t have a Google account, you can also enter by emailing your high-res photos (maximum of two per category per person) to:
with a brief blurb about the photo, including when and where the photo was taken, the category you wish to enter, and your Twitter handle (if applicable) to link you to your photo on social media.

Entry is open to:

  • Current ASH members (even if you’re not attending the conference).

  • Current SRARNZ members (even those not attending the conference).

  • Any non-members who are attending the 2018 conference.

Prizes will be awarded in person at the 2018 conference. Depending on what we come up with for prizes, we may or may not be able to post it to you if you win but are unable to collect it in person at the conference. Entries must be received by midnight Friday November 30, 2018. Entries will be on display at the Kindilan conference, where the winners will be announced. As usual, winners will be selected by public vote at the conference.

By entering, you are consenting to us using your photo for promotional purposes related to the conference and the photo competition. This may involve posting a small version of your image on social media (Facebook and/or Twitter) during or after the conference.
