The National Library of Australia and Picture Australia have teamed up with Flickr and Yahoo! to create another interesting type of digital storytelling project: Telling the “we story” through photographs.
PictureAustralia has created two public groups in Flickr where “citizen photo journalists” can upload their photographs and show the rest of the world what it means to be Australian in the 21st Century.
As of today, there are over 1600 photos in the PictureAustralia: People, places and events Flickr group. The other Flickr group, PictureAustralia: Australia Day, has over 170 pictures so far. Very cool!
I love this image from the Northern Territory of Ayer’s Rock:
I’m ready for a trip down under after looking at some of these images… Anyone looking for a conference keynote speaker at an Australian edtech conference?! 😉
