'Australian For Life' Competition Winners
Along with our partner Surf Life Saving, we’re excited to announce the winners for this summer’s ‘Australian For Life’ assignment.
We simply asked you to capture what it means to be Australian.
In six weeks we got hundreds of great entries of quintessentially Australian moments from across the country.
A winner was chosen from each state and they received:
1. Enrollment into Nikon School’s ‘Introduction to DSLR’ course
2. Nikon D3100 DSLR 18-55mm VR & 55-300mm VR twin lens kit valued at $1449 RRP
3. A ‘Nikon Ambassador Experience’ where all winners will be flown from their nearest capital
city to spend a day with some of the Nikon Ambassadors
There were three judges:
1. Australian swimming champion Geoff Huegill
2. Nikon Ambassador and one of Australia’s leading sports photographers Mark Watson
3. Ironwoman Champion Naomi Flood
They spent several days reviewing the unprecedented volume of entries and were really impressed by the standard of photography in the entries. There was a bit of a recurring theme in defining what it means to be Australian For Life: Australia’s unique coastal landscape, a ‘can do’ attitude and inspiring people.
The Australian for Life photo competition was a great opportunity for all members of the community, young and old, to embrace summer, get outside, get active and photograph some of their favourite Australian moments. As a judge of the competition, I was looking for inspiring moments captured on camera, Geoff Huegill explained.
All winning photographs will be displayed at a special exhibition at Bondi Beach in Sydney (1/1 Notts Avenue, Bondi Beach) from the 27 – 30 January 2011.
