Visit to enter now.

Monster Children Magazine has today launched its eighth annual Photo Competition, and professional and amateur photographers are invited to submit entries online until November 5 to win a share of the massive prize pool worth $30,000AUD.

Once again we will be giving away $5,000AUD to the lucky winners of the Travel, Music, Portrait, Action and Lifestyle categories. In a Monster Children Photo Comp first, we will also be giving away a return trip to New Zealand’s Lake Wanaka region for the lucky winner of our Student category.

In 2017, the Monster Children Photo Competition received a record-breaking 17,000+ entries. We also introduced the ‘Portrait’ category to the Monster Children Photo Competition, which was taken out by Wisconsin-based photographer Margaret Durow, for her moving self-portrait taken during recovery from extensive surgeries to straighten her spine.

Over the years the annual Monster Children Photo Competition has established itself as one of the most renowned youth culture photo comps in the world, with past finalists including Todd Glasser, Chris Burkard, Andrew Peters, Laura Austin, Ryan Allan and Woody Gooch. All shortlisted and prize winning photographs will be featured in the 2018 Monster Children Annual, and will also be shown at exhibitions unveiling the competition winners in Sydney and Los Angeles, to coincide with the launch of the magazine in December.

The Monster Children Annual 2018 features some of the year’s top photography from around the globe, an interview with actor Jonah Hill on his directorial debut Mid90’s, an in-depth chat with LA skater Elijah Berle and a very special interview feature and cover shoot with the formidable Cat Power. The Monster Children Annual 2018 is officially on sale online at and at selected newsstands and boutique stockists Friday December 7.
