Try Hard Magazine is an independent, online publication focused on Australian and New Zealand photography. It is dedicated to showcasing the work of Australian photographers, New Zealand photographers and international photographers who may be living or working in either country.

Try Hard Magazine also aims to encourage writers and academics to contribute original written content in the form of essays, interviews and book reviews that act to further the dialogue centered around the medium.

Try Hard Magazine was founded by photographers Benjamin Chadbond and Patrick Mason.
