Visioning the Outdoors 2017 is now OPEN

Closing dates are yet to be finalised but entries are OPEN

NEW for 2017 - Visioning the Outdoors on Instagram




The theme is LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS! This is your opportunity to share your passion for the outdoors in Queensland. We want you to submit photos or short films that capture the essence of your life lived outdoors. This might be your adventure, your escape, your connection, whatever your unique experience of the outdoors may be.

We need YOU to create visions of living life outdoors that inspire everyday people to commit to getting into the outdoors more often.

Photos and short films should communicate in a way which inspires people to visit new places, or revisit old favourites, to try new activities, or challenge themselves in their current activities.
