We’re inviting photographers of all ages and skill levels to share their own images of the west in the Hydro Tasmania Photography Project. The theme of the project is ‘people and places in Tasmania’s west’, and to take part all you need to do is upload your best photos (in square format) onto Instagram and tag them #TMAGwest. A selection of the tagged images will then be chosen to be screened in the exhibition.
