Friends photo and poetry competition

NRHA Friends of the Alliance Photo and Poetry competition Entry closes 15 July 2022

Announcing the 2022 Friends Photo and Poetry Competition to celebrate life in rural and remote Australia.

Through photographs and poetry this competition aims to showcase the beauty of rural and remote Australia, and celebrate the strength and character of our vibrant rural communities.

We are seeking entries focusing on the #loverural theme. Images and words that portray such things as everyday life in the bush, personal experiences with drought, flood or bushfires, providing health services, parenting children, caring for others, farming, relationships, education or perhaps how you coped with isolation and social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Finalists in each category will be exhibited at the 16th National Rural Health Conference in Brisbane on 2–4 August 2022. The winners of each category will be selected by conference delegates and announced on the final day of the conference. Winners will be notified by email.
