Picture Australia Day

Show us your Australia Day!

The National Library is collaborating with Yahoo! Australia & NZ on an initiative to increase the number of contemporary images in PictureAustralia, a community resource which the Library manages.

PictureAustralia, is a bank of more than one million images from the pictorial collections of over 40 national and international institutions. The images are primarily historical – pictures of Australian towns, streets, public buildings as well as people and events. How interesting it would be to compare images of those towns and streets with how they look today. That’s where we need your help.

The Library has established two groups on FlickR, Yahoo!’s online image repository,
PictureAustralia – Australia Day and PictureAustralia – People, places and events. We invite you to take photographs of your town or city on Australia Day, join FlickR and add your images to the Australia Day group.
