One Day For Sight is a photographic competition that has been designed to bring focus onto a gift that photographers depend on every day, their eyesight. Photographers have fantastically tuned vision, coupled with a strong sense of design. For this international competition, we have asked you to produce a picture or pictures around a colour theme, the first competition in 2015 was yellow, this year (2016) it will be red.

Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to raise much needed money for a great cause, the challenge will produce an exhibition of pictures that tells a striking story.

Yellow

What an amazing colour. It speaks of optimism and warmth, when we first learn to draw, it is the colour we choose for light. This year, we want you the photographer to participate in our challenge to produce a picture or pictures around the theme of yellow. This photographic challenge has been designed to bring focus onto a gift that photographers often take for granted, their eye sight. Photographers have fantastically tuned vision, coupled with a strong sense of design.

This challenge, which is to be completed in one day, will both raise funds for Sight For All and produce an exhibtion of pictures that tells a striking story.

Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to be featured in an exhibition but it will raise much needed funds for a great cause, but there are some amazing prizes: First prize is a Zeiss lens with either Canon or Nikon mount, valued at $1800(including GST) and $2500 cash ($AUD) Second Prize is $2500 ($AUD).
