State Library Supports

See images of South Australia captured through the eyes of students from across the state.

Presented by the Geography Teachers’ Association of South Australia, this exhibition showcases the finalists of this year’s SA Geography Students photo competition. Students from across South Australia in years 7 to 9 were challenged to capture a photograph that celebrated their state as a desirable place to live.

Entrants were rewarded for their creativity and how their image captured different aspects of liveability, such as cultural activities, environmental quality and safety.

The judging panel was made up of geography and photography specialists, including award-winning photographer David Mariuz.
