Canberra has turned 100. So what better way to celebrate the Canberra Centenary than to mash it up. The NFSA is running a competition where you get to create your own version of Canberra Is Calling To You. Record a new version or remix the old one - or both - it's up to you.

We want you to create and share your version of our capital's own song, Canberra's Calling to You. As part of the Centenary of Canberra celebrations, the NFSA is inviting the nation's musicians -- amateur and professional alike -- to get creative with this ditty.

This version has a slightly reworked audio version of the original song with NFSA Film Australia Collection images from various Canberra titles in the collection.

The original version was written and recorded by Jack Lumsdaine in 1938. We want versions of Canberra's Calling to You in all musical genres and styles. You can sing along with the piano accompaniment, or create your own musical performance using the sheet music and chord charts. The original can be sampled and remixed, or a whole new recording made from a combination of these raw materials and your own creativity. Humorous adaptations or parodies are welcome.
Our curators will select some of their favourite versions to be added to the national collection.
