Aussie Men (teens and adults) - Winner: ImagesByDi

This challenge closed over 7 years ago.

The Challenge

The world has the perception of the "typical " Australian male…you’ve probably imagined him already: tall, sunburned, probably blond and blue-eyed, short on words but long on ability to sink the stubbies (i.e. get drunk) with his mates, unhurried (“she’ll be right, mate”), an enemy of pretentioness, and unreconstructed in his chauvinism. The stereotype exists, of course, but few Australians can be quite so easily categorized these days !

Nevertheless, over the course of Australia’s history, laiden with male machoism and heroicsm, spawned the Australian legendary male archetypes of the Aussie Bushman, the Digger (Soldier), the Lifesaver, the Swagman, and more recently the Footy Player.

We want to see lots of aussie men at work, at play, at rest – stereotypical or not!
