Wesley Mission Scrapbooking Competition



Capture the Spirit with Sprit of Tasmania

Capture the Spirit is an exciting search to find and reward Australia’s quiet achievers in the world of photography. The people behind Bass Strait’s iconic ships are looking for photographs by enthusiastic and talented Australian snappers that celebrate and engage with the beauty of Tasmania.

Whether it’s capturing that idyllic shot of the sun setting over stunning Cradle Mountain, a group of friends sharing the delights of Hobart, or a couple bushwalking in picturesque Wine Glass Bay, Spirit of Tasmania want to share your pictures with the world. And what’s more, there are great prizes to be won including digital cameras and holidays!

The Capture the Spirit photography collection will be displayed online as part of a specially designed virtual gallery. There’s a Best Kid’s Photo Award category, which is open to those aged 12 years and under, and Spirit of Tasmania is also linking up with the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program by including a special charity category entitled ‘My Favourite Tassie Devil’. The judges will be looking for creativity so perhaps a Looney Tunes style Taz or your Tasmanian Devil tie will come in handy! Of course, photographs of the real thing will be accepted too. So what are you waiting for?

Entry to this competition is via website only and entrants are asked to upload images that are a minimum of 300dpi.
