That one shot x Uppercup 2015 – FAQ

Over the last few years the Australian street art scene has exploded with amazing work from local and international talent. This in turn has inspired hundreds of photographers to find creative ways to capture the evolution of the Australian streets. In 2015 we are calling on the photographers of Australia to submit their favorite single shot as part of “That One Shot” Australia’s third annual street art photography award.
