Mildura Wentworth GOLD Photo Comp People's Choice winner in March 2009. Laine & Lachy Playing in Water - Photo Mark Scott

The GOLD Team invites you to enter a series of Photo Competitions that we are running throughout 2009 by sending us your images.

The GOLD project is recording the stories of individuals and families from across the Murray-Darling Basin, creating an extensive collection of personal portraits through a variety of mediums such as photography, film, and music.

This collection is a remarkable record of life in the midst of a changing Australian landscape. The GOLD project invites you to share and celebrate the images that capture your life in the Murray-Darling by entering the GOLD Photo Competition. We would also like to receive entries from anywhere in the world where communities are experiencing a changing climate and issues relating to water availability.

Prizes will be awarded in three categories:
1. Best Landscape

2. Best Portrait

3. Peoples Choice Award as judged by online users of the GOLD website.
