Welcome to the Open Category of the Competition, this category is open to Australian residents of any age.
There is a $10.00 entry fee for each image entered with no limit on the number of photographs you can enter.
For this category you’re asked to take photos that represent the Competition theme Healthy Life – Healthy You.
Here are some topic ideas:
- Physical activity and healthy lifestyles
- Respectful relationships
- Healthy environments
- Diversity, multiculturalism and inclusion
- Healthy communities
- Well-being, resilience, purpose and happiness.
It’s really important that you understand the health aspects of your topic and healthy behaviours that should be included in your photograph.
An example of this is if you’re taking a photograph of someone exercising in the sun, you ensure they’re wearing sun protection, this shows the judges that you’ve taken the time to learn about healthy behaviours.
You can also find a range of health related topics and ideas at the Your Health Link website.
There are a few things you need to know before you take your photograph, so go to the Dos and Don’ts section of this website to find out more, please follow our Photographic Submission Guidelines for image exclusions.
If you are under 18 years of age you must have permission from your parent or guardian to enter this category (see Terms and Conditions).
