Tell Ya Story Photography Competition


The ‘Tell Ya Story’ Australian Photography Competition will be held from June to August, to give those who have studied in Australia, the opportunity to document their memories and tell their story of their time in Australia, through photographs!!

We want to see your favourite snaps of your time in Oz… did you hike the Blue Mountains, surf the golden beaches of the Gold Coast, swim with dolphins, cruise the Great Ocean Road, or just get up close n snuggly with Koala Bear?!?  Perhaps you met some of your closest friends for life? 

Whatever your experience in Australia, we want to see your photos and hear the story behind them!!

So send us your pics and in 300 words or less..


We are not looking for the best photo in terms of photographic quality but the photo that most captures the essence of student’s time in Australia!!
