Do you love taking creative dance photos?
Do you love sharing your dance pics on Instagram?

If you’re a creative and talented dance photographer, post your photos on Instagram and tag _dance_australia to be in the running to win some fabulous prizes! There's $1,000 worth of Capezio vouchers up for grabs! Plus the best photos will be featured in Dance Australia magazine* and in our Instagram feed, and might even be used as our cover image!

We’re looking for your most creative dance shots… let your imagination run wild!

We're not just looking for the perfect arabesque (though we love those too!). We are looking for the creative mastery of composition, lighting, costume and setting as well as an understanding of the technical capacities of the camera.

What fleeting moment can you capture with a click of your finger? What sculptural poetry can you freeze in time? How can you use the camera to emphasise the shadows and planes of the human body? How can you capture the volatility, speed or subtle flow of dance? The fervour of collaboration in the studio? The intense concentration of the creator? The unguarded moment backstage?
