MOSAIC is a crowdsourcing photography project and free public exhibition, harnessing the potential of imagery to connect people, places and moments. Every photograph in MOSAIC reveals a personal story and a unique moment in time, forming a collective memory of our life and culture in WA. 

Capture and submit your photo for MOSAIC!

MOSAIC Capture Day is on Saturday 23 September.

Now in its fifth year, MOSAIC is an all-inclusive and entirely community driven photography project that explores the collective memory of Western Australians over the course of a day. Propel invites all residents of Western Australia to capture a photo over a 24-hour period, on Saturday 23 September, then you have up to a week to upload your photo - along with any other information - using the button below.

Beach days, breakfast dates, football games, dog walks, sunsets and storms, we want to know what a day in WA looks like, from your perspective.
