Visioning the Outdoors

Film & Photo Competition

share your passion for the outdoors in Queensland


Best Photo

Mt Kaputar Sunrise by Steffen Bollmann

A beautiful moment at a stunning location, captured with perfect lighting – I love it. To me this shot evokes so much that’s good about the enjoying outdoors.
Chris Bray, Photo Judge

Best Film

Queensland Adventure by John Hopper

The Adventure Queensland film has some really unusual cinematography in it that I found quite artistic and really brought out the subject matter.
Toby Ryston-Pratt, Film Judge

To check out all the winning entries, go to WINNERS 2018

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 outdoor recreation – in the outdoors!
  • It is not a nature or landscape competition, nor is it a portrait competition.
  • Nature, landscape or portrait entries will not be disqualified but should capture the essence of the competition theme: LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS
