Time to get snapping
There’s less than two weeks to get your entry in for the Simple Pleasures Photography Competition 2010 in Brunswick Heads.
Shannon Dousling, office manager of The Brunswick Visitors Information Centre, has been watching the entries come in and is encouraging locals and visitors alike to have a go.
“The theme this year is the Colours of Bruns. We have had some truly spectacular sunsets lately and lots of reports of whales and dolphins down at Torakina Beach – there’s plenty of inspiration for a prize-winning photo,” she said.
“The competition is open to anyone from anywhere and with so many great prizes up for grabs, I think you’d be mad not to have a go.”
All finalists and highly commended entrants receive vouchers and certificates, while the People’s Choice Award winner picks up a prize pack valued at more than $200.
“We are excited to be able to offer finalists and their families an evening to celebrate the art of photography and acknowledge the outstanding talent in our community,” said the event co-ordinator, Lanie Loughlin.
All category winners’ photographs will appear in the 2011 Brunswick Heads Simple Pleasures Calendar.
Entry forms are available online at www.brunswickheads.org.au/photocomp or from the Brunswick Information Centre, 7 Park St, Brunswick Heads.
Entries close at 5pm on Friday, August 6, with judging on August 18.
Photographs will go on display in a town-wide shop window exhibition from August 21 to September 24 when locals and visitors will have a chance to vote for the People’s Choice Award.
Top riverside spot in Brunswick Heads, Sandbar, will again play host to the prize award ceremony when finalists and winners celebrate and pick up there prizes on Sunday, September 12.
