With the NGV Summer Sunday Sessions well upon us, it’s time to enjoy the great outdoors at the NGV or at home.  While we are inviting you to spend your Sundays in our backyard, it’s also a good time to enjoy that little patch you call your backyard. To celebrate the NGV Summer Sunday Sessions hosted in Melbourne’s best backyard and the NGV joining Instagram, we are running our first Instagram competition.

We are asking you to #showyourbackyard to win a prize pack worth almost $1,500 (rrp). Melbourne’s Lucy Feagins from The Design Files, Australia’s most popular design blog, has  helped pull together the prize and will be the judge of the winning entry.
