Flat Lay Photo Competition

During summer it is especially important to be prepared for bushfires and other emergency situations such as power outages, summer storms and flooding. One thing you can do to be prepared is to pack a 'Grab and Go' bag.

A Grab and Go bag is a ready packed bag filled with items you may need in an emergency, or even just the ‘must haves’ that you take with you every day.

Have you thought about what to put in your Grab and Go bag? If so, we want you to show us! It could contain items like sunscreen, a phone charger or a water bottle.

To enter the competition:

  1. take a flat lay photo of the contents of your bag (check out the image below for some inspiration)
  2. answer a few important emergency awareness questions
  3. submit your Instagram worthy image to be in the running for pair of Apple Airpods!

We’re looking for practicality and style, so be creative and have fun with it!

The prize

The prize winner will be chosen at random and announced on 29 January 2021.

The prize is a pair of Apple Airpods valued at $249.
