Museums Victoria holds twenty-eight educational posters produced by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd in the 1980s. Most of these posters were developed by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd in collaboration with other organisations for use in schools.

Some of the posters, such as those created in collaboration with the National Botanic Gardens in Canberra, and those created in conjunction with the Bird Observers Club, were accompanied by factsheets explaining the significance and history of the flora and birds depicted.

Other posters, such as Kodak's 'Capture Your Friends on Kodak Film' campaign and 'Young Shots of Australia' competition posters, produced in conjunction with National Australia Day Council (N.A.D.C.), were part of wider campaigns to encourage an interest in photography. Naturally, all of the posters also served to promote the Kodak brand.

The Kodak Heritage Collection, held by Museums Victoria, contains examples of all of these four series of educational campaign posters, and some associated documentation.
