Keeping the Spirit Alive - Exploring
links to Gallipoli in story, poem and picture
In 2013 we offered media the opportunity to give readers or listeners
a chance to be in Gallipoli as part of the 100th anniversary commemoration
of the Gallipoli campaign. Sands of Gallipoli proudly sponsored
community focused competitions to help keep the ANZAC spirit alive
in our communities.
Here's how we did it...
This year (2013) we're asking your readers or listeners to draw
a line back to the Gallipoli legend. For the potential one million
or so direct living descendants of diggers who served in the Gallipoli
campaign it could be about family war stories or keepsakes passed
through the ages and how these stories have shaped the family.
For others it could be stories about family who are currently
serving or who have served, or even commemorative places in their
community. For all it can be stories or pictures of inspiration
and pride and how they see the ANZAC legend today. It's just about
appreciating who we are today is part of what our diggers did
so long ago.
For the kids: The 'Little
ANZAC's Art Prize' invites kids (up to 12 years of age) to
create an artwork depicting the Gallipoli experience. This can
be anything from scenes from the battlefield, through to a picture
of the local memorial - it's about helping them make their connection.
Prizes: Competition prizes
are provided free to participating media outlets. 2013's local
prize for your audience is a superb limited edition six medallion
set depicting elements of the Lone Pine battle valued at $225.00.
The Little ANZAC's Art Prize is a cuddly 30cm Soldier Bear
valued at $24.00. We'll also provide a Little ANZACs Soldier On
Art Prize merit certificate so you can make every Little ANZAC
artist a winner.
All entrants go into the draw to win the major prize of a Stateroom
for two aboard Military History Tours' Gallipoli 100 Tour with
