Rural Aid CEO John Warlters congratulated the photographers behind the 12 winning photos.

“Each photo tells a compelling story, whether it be of a successful crop, sunset silhouette or tender moment between working dog and owner,” Mr Warlters said.

“A powerful love of livestock and the land really shines through in this year’s pictures.”

“Our annual competition always attracts hundreds of entries. Thank you to all those who sent their photos in to be judged and congratulations to our winners.”

The 12 photos will be used to create a stunning 2024 calendar.

“Any profits from the calendar’s sale are directed back into Rural Aid’s range of award-winning programs,” Mr Warlters said.

“Rural Aid is proud to stand with our mates in the bush when they need it, whether that’s through a hay delivery, pre-paid visa card, or free counselling.”

“I’d encourage anyone with an appreciation of the bush to consider purchasing one of these beautiful calendars.”

The calendars are available for pre-order now through the website:

Mr Warlters also congratulated the two-time winners of the Spirit of the Bush competition.

“We’ve had a few talented photographers who have chalked up their second Spirit of the Bush win,” Mr Warlters said.

“It’s fantastic to see this competition supported by such a dedicated community, year in, year out,” Mr Warlters finished.

More than 300 entries were submitted to this year’s competition.
