Keeping The Spirit Alive

On Anzac Day each year Australians pause to reflect on the service of our sailors , soldiers and airmen. We remember their courage, service and sacrifice and we proudly acknowledge the history of the ANZAC spirit.

The landing at Gallipoli is where the ANZAC spirit was first expressed and Australians through the generations have continued to acknowledge and demonstrate the spirit of service and mateship.

This year to mark the 97th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli the Sands of Gallipoli campaign has commissioned a beautiful historically correct artwork depicting the event. The artwork by the renown artist David Rowlands is named The Spirit - Gallipoli Landing 1915 and has been reviewed by a number of military historians who agree that it represents the most accurate depiction to date of the dawn landing at Anzac Cove on 25th April 1915.

Too good to keep secret we would like to invite you to join us in sharing this beautiful piece with your audience by offering them the opportunity to participate in and compete for a unique prize which truly reflects the spirit of the Anzac tradition.

This year as in previous years we would like to offer you a limited edition set of six medallions currently valued at $225.00 to support the competition. The medallions depict images from the painting The Spirit - Gallipoli Landing 1915.

In addition this year, we would like to offer the opportunity for the winning entrant from each media outlet to go into a draw to win a Full Size Canvas Limited Edition Print, valued at $1,950. The artwork is limited to 100 units and is issued with certificate of authenticity signed and numbered by the artist. This beautiful piece accurately depicts this significant day in our history and will be a great addition to any collection. Size 1410mm x 990mm.

To join in, please download and complete the participation form. The form can be returned by email to maureen@sandsofgallipoli.com.au or by fax to 02 6280 9966. Please complete and return the sheet by the 16th of April 2012 so we can send you the free prize valued at $225.00. Please note that this is a no cost to you promotion.
