#AustraliaDay Your Way is a digital snapshot of our national day, an initiative of the National Museum of Australia, Twitter and the National Australia Day Council. It encourages Australians everywhere to use #AustraliaDay to share an image of what they are doing on Australia Day.
Each year, the National Museum will curate a selection of tweets into a live, digital exhibition, and all tweets tagged #AustraliaDay will be stored in a time capsule. The inaugural Australia Day Your Way 2016 time capsule is currently on display at the Museum.
For the first time ever, you can Tweet using the #AustraliaDay to generate a new emoji created especially for Australia Day 2016.
The new Australia Day Emoji - unveiled at a launch in Canberra is available exclusively on Twitter, and provides yet another way to share Australia Day with friends, family and the world.
Each time the hashtag ‘#AustraliaDay’ is used on Twitter, the image of a Koala wearing green and gold ‘shades’ will automatically be added to the Tweet.
Australian tweeters are also able to go into the running to have their #AustraliaDay photos included in an exclusive music video sound tracked to the song “You Could Be Wild” by Reece Mastin the 2016 Australia Day Ambassador Champion.
So wherever you are this Australia Day, tweet a photo using #AustraliaDay and become part of a digital snapshot of our national day.
