ONE DAY FOR SIGHT
A photo competition with a mission.
One Day For Sight has been designed to bring focus onto a gift that photographers depend on every day, their eyesight.
Photographers have fantastically tuned vision, coupled with a strong sense of design.
For this open competition, we would like you to produce a picture or pictures around the theme colour.
Funds from all entries will go to supporting our sight-saving projects.
Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to raise much needed funds, but the challenge will produce an exhibition of pictures that tells a striking story.
Entry is $30 per image submitted. See below for valid entry requirements.
Congratulations to our all of our placed entrants and thank you to all entrants who submitted their work, all in the name of a great cause!
Our first place was awarded to Sarah Fairbanks, 2nd place to Samantha Russell and 3rd place to Francesco Pace Rizzi.
The 2021 theme: PINK!
A colour for all seasons.
Courageous. Confident. Vital.
The 2021 theme colour is brave. It’s a colour for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.
Pink emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor.
It is encouraging and uplifting, instills confidence, courage and spirit to meet the challenges of everyday life.
Our thanks to our incredible sponsors for proving prizes for One Day For Sight 2021.
A world-class print for our worthy winners.
