It’s with much excitement that we invite you to contribute your photographic interpretation of the road and roadside life to our next book, Behind the Wheel: life on the Australian road.
The preference is for contemporary content, but we’ll welcome great photographs taken years ago with open arms too (and a warm cuppa). Also important to note is that most Australians drive city and suburban roads, and so any photographs that capture our urban networks will be greatly appreciated.
If this sounds like a project that interests or inspires you, please submit your magnificent road-related images. If you know of a location that demands to be photographed, shoot away!
To help make this upcoming collection of Australian work extraordinary, we’d love your help spreading the word to photographers and photographic organisations within your network – professional OR amateur, for what matters first and foremost is the quality of the photograph rather than an impressive résumé.
The following are some suggested themes (and food for thought). Others will appear as submissions grow…
Windscreen views | Off road (dirt roads) | Main Street Australia (small towns) | City and suburban driving | Long and winding roads | Bridges | Interesting signs | Truck driver journeys | Roadside humour | Specific roads (Great Ocean Road, Hume Highway, Nullarbor Highway…) | Pit stops (petrol stations, garages & roadside businesses) | Abandoned wrecks | Portraits of owners and their cars
The closing date for submissions is April 30, 2017.
While we cannot guarantee financial success, what we hope to achieve from this, and from all future titles, is to showcase excellence in Australian photography. We greatly appreciate your support in this endeavour, and we look forward to seeing your submission(s).
