Entries open: The Joyful Project

Share your favourite joyful images!

What brings you joy? We'd love to know! In turbulent times, it's the small things that can brighten your day. A morning coffee, a lazy sleep in, freshly baked muffins, movie night with your kids, or a colourful new pair of shoes.

The Crown Street Mall Exhibition Blocks have played host to a range of beautiful art and photography exhibitions over the past year. This Christmas, it's your turn to take part in a community exhibition. We'll be filling the blocks with as many photos of your happy faces and places as possible - to create 'The Joyful Project'. Each side of the blocks will host multiple photos - so there is plenty of space for everyone to take part.

Selected photos will be on display over the 2021-2022 summer period.

How do I enter?

  1. Upload a photo that shows joy. It could be the things, people or places that bring a smile to your face. Think jumping on the trampoline, a family celebration, or dancing in your kitchen! If you're using a phone camera, make sure it's set to the highest image quality. Your photo can be up to 20 MB file size.
  2. Write a short message (up to 280 characters) that explains what brings you joy during tough times. Think about when you feel happiest, or how you can bring joy to others. Try to follow the format: "(Activity) at (location) brings me great joy!"
  3. Read the project Terms and Conditions.
  4. Submit your entry: Use the button below to fill in your details, upload your photo and your message of joy. Entries close Sunday 19th September.

A stay at home order currently applies to the Wollongong area. So this project is perfect for you to capture some of the happy times you are experiencing right now at home or at your favourite local exercise destination!
