Nikon Australia supports Tropfest 2016

Tropfest 2015

Nikon Australia is proud to support Tropfest, Australia’s most prestigious short film festival and one of its most iconic cultural events.

Tropfest is recognized for its enormous contribution to the development of the Australian film industry by providing unique platforms for talented filmmakers through its events and initiatives.

What started as an informal short film screening for cast, crew and friends by John Polson twenty-one years ago, Tropfest now attracts a live national audience of around 150,000 people on a single night. The event is hosted at Sydney’s Centennial Park with live screenings in outdoor locations in major cities including Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Hobart and Surfers Paradise.

This Valentine’s Day, Nikon would like to invite you all to visit us at our Nikon stand, open from 12pm. You’ll have the chance to get hands on with the Nikon range, explore the quality features and have fun playing bubble soccer or jump in the Valentine’s photo booth for your chance to win a $400 Nikon Store voucher. Don’t miss this incredible event, we look forward to seeing you at the Nikon stand.
