What does it mean to be “Living Australian?” The Australian day Council of NSW with the support of Australia Post encouraged Australians from across the country to explore the theme of “Who We Are” as a nation, by showcasing how they live as Aussies every day through the creative medium of photography.
The response was overwhelming, with 3,350 images submitted in the categories of Community; Pride; Family and Mates; and Freedom. The winning entries, including the overall winner “Best Friends” by Ann Clarke of South Australia, are featured in Living Australian 2011 Stamps Series.
The bond between man’s best friend and his owner has always been a strong one. Dogs offer companionship, loyalty, and for large numbers of people they also provide a service.
Australia Day allows family and friends the opportunity to get together and celebrate. It can also be the day when groups of people meet up and forge life-long friendships.
