CameraPro is proud to be sponsoring Out From The Mist, a national photography competition centring on mental health.

It’s estimated that a staggering 45% of Australians have experienced a mental disorder in their lifetime. For sufferers and their loved ones, Out From The Mist offers a unique, and hopefully healing, opportunity to express themselves and their individual experiences – from the lows of suffering through to the highs of overcoming challenges.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing the stories and themes explored by our participants,” competition creative director, Michael Lockwood, said.

“Photography is such an amazing form of expression. We want to give people with experiences of mental health the chance to reveal their personal stories through the medium.”

All stories are valid and welcome. Participants are invited to submit photos to various categories including lived experience, relationships, recovery, and change.

Prizes Include:

  • 1st Prize: $3,650 + an Affinity software package
  • 2nd Prize: $1,000 + a $500 voucher, both courtesy of CameraPro
  • 3rd Prize: Four prizes of $1000 each
  • 4th Prize: Six prizes each of Affinity Photo editing software

Highly commended and selected entries will be exhibited at Brisbane City Hall and QUT Kelvin Grove in October.

The competition is open from now until 15 September 2019. To submit entries or for more details, please visit the Out From The Mist website.
