Immerse yourself in your camera as you capture mesmerizing images of creative sculpture works within Australia’s most historic cemetery. 

 
We invite all photographers - beginners, amateur and experienced - to attend a Photography Meet or Workshop at Rookwood Cemetery. See the HIDDEN Happenings page for more detailed event information.
 
In addition, there are two photography competitions being run this year, one for all visitors and one for our audience aged 24 years and under.
 
We are looking for the most engaging and visually striking entries that respond to the exhibition’s themes of history, culture, remembrance and love. Entries will be judged on quality, not quantity; originality; and/or creativity.
