Peer into a side of Australian life that you have never encountered. Or perhaps you encounter every day.
Australian Life is the annual photography competition that frames our country through the lens of professional and first-time photographers.
Our panel of judges have rounded up the top 22 photos. Images from the Top End to Tasmania and everywhere in between. The winning photo will be awarded $10,000. Finalists will be announced Wednesday 8 August.
