This is part of the anti-smoking campaign "iChooseFreshAir" that is particularly focussed on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, who have a higher than average rate of tobacco use. The campaign uses positive messages about well-being and connection to country as the motivation to reduce smoking.
The Photo Competition invites all 12 to 25 year olds living in NSW to submit a photo based on the theme: what not smoking and choosing fresh air means to you or to Aboriginal culture. There are great prizes, including $250 Mastercard Giftcards, Indigenous Jersies, as well as an iPad mini for the major prize winner.
The competition runs until November, with a winner announced each month. People can enter as many times as they like.
