Lumix Life Focus On Australia

Lumix Life is back and with a once-in-a-life-time opportunity for Aussie photographers!

Panasonic is happy to announce the sequel to the popular Lumix Life project with Lumix Life Focus on Australia. From April 1st 2010 we’re inviting all Aussie LUMIX photographers to capture what they see as the heart and soul of Australia.

It could be a dramatic landscape, unique wildlife or a quirky snapshot of Aussie life, whatever you feel represents this diverse country of ours. With your help we will be able to cover Australia with Lumix photographs and help capture the beauty of our land and culture.

Imagine being published in a book alongside the best photographers in Australia!

Photos selected by our judges will be part of a unique book concept where professionals and amateurs alike will be published side-by-side in a stunning publication called ‘Focus on Australia’. The professionally published coffee-table book will be made available in bookstores around Australia and those photographers whose images are published will receive their very own copy.

Our LUMIX Life ‘Pro Shooters’, including Ken Duncan, Peter Eastway, Bill Bachman, Leo Meier, Nick Rains, Frances Mocnik, Ted Grambeau, Hugh Brown and celebrity guest photographer Ray Martin, will be traveling across the country – from the remote corners of the Kymberly to the bustling city centers – to capture their vision of Australia. A collection of these images will be included ‘Focus on Australia’ along with the successful entries.

All proceeds go to charity

Proceeds from the sale of the book will be used to help fund the Walk a While indigenous arts educational program which gives indigenous youth access to training and technology in the areas of photography, film and music, so they can tell their stories. Walk a While has positively impacted the lives of indigenous youth in remote Australian communities for the past six years. Ken Duncan heads a team of artists which helps the young people learn about the diversity of the photographic industry and the opportunities it can offer, with the aim being to help build confidence through the program.

  • I would just like to say how dfissapointing dealing with Panasonic has been. We purchased a plasma screen tv with the offer of a lumix camera. We purchased through inrent and because we were paying off the TV in 12 months instead of 24 we were voided.We were not informed of this until 3 months after purchase. We have contacted Panasonic numerous times with no response apart from if we read clause number !@$%^&.I have contacted the state panasonic manager who just ignores our calls. What an absoluetly unprofessional company.I will never purchase from panasonic again
