The Defence Force has launched an Anzac art competition offering a day with the navy, army or air force to the winner.

The competition, open to Year 7 and 8 students, asks entrants to design a poster illustrating what Anzac Day means to them.

The top 12 designs will be published in a 2010 calendar as part of the 95th anniversary celebrations of the Gallipoli landings.
