Please provide a description of what inspired you to take this photo and where it was taken and it would be helpful if you can locate this on the Flickr map. It is important that you tag your photo according to the category otherwise we may not know which category you are entering your photos into. Each category will have one winner plus there will be one overall winner.
The Powerhouse Museum will be holding an exhibition of the winning entries and highly commended photographs and if you are selected we will need to ask you for a high resolution digital file for this purpose.
By entering your images in this group you are also allowing for this work to be shown on the Powerhouse Museum website and for the exhibition display.
Following the judging, the winners will feature along with highly commended entries in a display at the Powerhouse Museum in 2012.
