Introducing Kickin Up Dust: Celebrating Rural Communities and Connecting People

Kickin Up Dust is an extraordinary publication, proudly Australian owned, run, printed, and distributed. Our mission is simple yet powerful: to connect rural communities by showcasing their lives, experiences, and sacrifices. We accomplish this by creating a captivating coffee table-style book filled with stunning images and features collected from people all across our diverse and exhilarating country.

Submissions are open


Our publication is a visual and literary tribute to the vibrant and often overlooked rural communities that make up the backbone of the world. We believe that their stories deserve to be told and celebrated. Each image and photograph we include in our book is carefully selected to capture the essence of rural life and convey the rich tapestry of experiences that shape these communities.

Sustainability is a core value for us at Kickin Up Dust. We are committed to minimizing our environmental impact, which is why every word and photograph in our publication is printed using vegetable dyes on 100% Australian recycled paper. By choosing sustainable materials, we aim to create a beautiful keepsake that not only honors rural communities but also supports the health and preservation of our environment.

In addition to our printed book, we embrace the power of social media to connect and engage with our growing community. We believe that everyone has a story to share, and we encourage our readers to tag us in their own photographs. We showcase these submissions on our social media platforms daily, fostering a sense of belonging and allowing individuals to have their voices heard on a broader scale.

We invite you to join us on this incredible journey of celebration, connection, and appreciation for rural life. Whether you're a resident of a rural community, an urban dweller yearning to learn more, or simply an enthusiast of breathtaking photography and heartfelt stories, Kickin Up Dust welcomes you with open arms.

Together, let's shine a spotlight on the incredible people, landscapes, and experiences that make rural living an integral part of our nation's identity. Through the pages of our book and the power of social media, let's foster a sense of unity and inspire a greater understanding and appreciation for the diverse tapestry of country life.
