The Anzac Centenary aims to honour the sacrifice and service of all who have served from the original ANZACS on the shores of Gallipoli, up to the service men and women currently serving at home and abroad. The Anzac Centenary Reflections Competitions is looking for entries that reflect some or all of these themes in a creative, engaging and impacting way through the medium of film, photography, short story and poetry.
This period recognises the generations of Australian men and women who have defended our values and freedoms in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service. The creative entries should underpin an overall theme of commemoration, reflection and honour, paying tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
