The theme is LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS, a celebration of the power of outdoor recreation activities to enrich people’s lives. 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 people to get 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 further.

Please Note:

  • This is a competition for and about the outdoors and outdoor activities
  • The competition is free to enter and should mainly feature content from Queensland, Australia.
  • It is not a nature or landscape competition, nor is it a portrait competition.
