To celebrate the museum’s 20th anniversary on 29 November 2011, we launched a photographic competition inviting visitors to share their museum moments from the past 20 years.
We received some fantastic entries from visitors across Australia, including a number of photos from Endeavour‘s current circumnavigation voyage. Below we feature the winning entries. Congratulations to Jacob, Sophie and Mitchell!
If you would like to view more of the entries, check out our Flickr page.
The winning photographs, along with a selection of other entries will feature in an upcoming issue of Australian Photography magazine and the next issue of Signals, the museum’s quarterly publication.
