Visioning the Outdoors

Photographer: Amber Senysyn

Film & Photo Competition

We are proud to announce the winners of the 2018 Visioning the Outdoors Film & Photo Competition.

Overall the quality of the entries was higher in 2018 than in previous years and the judging was therefore more challenging. While not all images were selected as the category winners, almost all the entries were outstanding in some way and many will go on to feature here on the QORF website and in social media from time to time to help us promote the outdoors and outdoor activity in Queensland.

The theme is LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS, a celebration of the power of outdoor recreation activities to enrich people’s lives. We want you to submit photos or short films that capture the essence of your life lived outdoors. This might be your adventure, your escape, your connection, whatever your unique experience of the outdoors may be.

We need YOU to create visions of living life outdoors that inspire people to get outdoors more often.

Photos and short films should communicate in a way which inspires people to visit new places, or revisit old favourites, to try new activities, or challenge themselves further.

Please Note:

  • This is a competition for and about outdoor recreation – in the outdoors!
  • It is not a nature or landscape competition, nor is it a portrait competition.
  • Nature, landscape or portrait entries will not be disqualified but should capture the essence of the competition theme: LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS

The Visioning the Outdoors Film & Photo Competition encourages lovers of the outdoors to celebrate the power of outdoor recreation to positively impact people’s lives.

The overall purpose of the competitions is to achieve the following outcomes:

  • encourage outdoor recreationists to capture images and create representations of their experiences;
  • build recognition amongst the wider community of outdoor activities, people and spaces;
  • inspire increased participation and respect for outdoor recreation and recreation environments;
  • raise the profile of the outdoor recreation and education sector; and
  • create shared value for partners supporting Visioning the Outdoors.

Visioning the Outdoors has been designed to contribute towards QORF’s broader objectives.
