Goa Billboard from 2013 project

One of the entries from 2013 by Liam Hardie

In its 17th year, the goa billboards Project has made some exciting changes for 2014.

In a new initiative, goa billboards Project in 2014 will welcome anyone with a love or flair for photography to participate in this competition alongside Brisbane secondary students.

Participants are asked to explore their personal experience, opinion and perspective in response to the theme of ANZAC through the medium of photography.

2014 marks the beginning of the ANZAC Centenary, which will run until 2018. Today, the term ANZAC commemorates not only those who served on the shores of Gallipoli, but also those who have served our country over the past one hundred years.

The 2014 goa billboards Project will feature two submission categories.

  • Secondary Schools
