Photo recreation competition

Recreate your favourite photo from our archive & win!

Eumundi Museum is offering you the opportunity to be involved in our next temporary exhibition.

Eumundi Reconstituted takes a glance back in time with a modern lens and ties the past and the present together in time through your creative photo recreations. The winning recreations will be added to our exhibition.

Original photos can be sourced from Eumundi Museum’s online E-Hive collection, or from the applicant’s own collection – so long as it is relevant to the theme.
