Conditions and requirements

Entries for each category will be open for two weeks. Please note we may have to scale images down before displaying them on our website.

As each category closes, entrants’ names will be put into a hat for a random draw. Two kids per category will each receive a $25 book voucher. One adult per category will receive a HEN membership extension (one year for digital, six months for paper based). Entrants may submit up to four photos per category, but each person will only receive one entry into the draw. You may submit photos for every category, but may only receive one prize.

To make things fair, a prize winner is not eligible to win another prize for three months, however they are welcome to submit photos.

HEN committee members may enter photos but not be eligible for a prize. Children of HEN committee members are eligible for prizes.

HEN alumni (formerly home educated kids) can submit photos, but are not eligible for prizes.

Entries will be available to view on the HEN website.

Kids’ photos may be included in an Otherways feature about the exhibition.

Adults who submit photos are agreeing to allow HEN to use them to illustrate Otherways articles/HEN materials.

Photos should be emailed to as attachments. Please include the following information in your email:
HEN membership number (log in to the website and find this under Account Details, Membership Card)
First name or initial of child
Age (kids)

We look forward to seeing your entries!
