Hobart is flushed with excitement in anticipation of that mischievous devil, Dark Mofo. To welcome curious visitors to Southern Tasmania, local landmarks, businesses and residences will Paint the Town Red. Red lights, lanterns and decorations will warm the day and night from Saturday 1 June for the duration of the festival (Thursday 6—Sunday 23 June 2019).

To encourage nocturnal adventuring, we are running a friendly little photo competition. And yes, there are some pretty sweet prizes up for grabs!

How do I enter?

Get outside, find the red, then get snap happy. See if you can capture the spirit of Southern Tasmania and Dark Mofo in a single frame. You can enter as many times as you like, so no need to choose just one red-lit wonder.

To enter, simply share your photos on Instagram by Sunday 30 June, tagging:

Where are the best spots to take photos?

This year is bigger and better than ever, with red lights sprawling out from the city as far as Southport, Lake St Clair, and the Tasman Peninsula. Consult the map to find the treasure.
