FOCUS Photographic Competition
Calling all amateur photographers to pick up your camera and start taking photos for the 2019 FOCUS Photographic Competition. The competition’s aim is to capture historical reality.
 
There are two categories:
Crossing the Line - some of our local rail crossings will soon change, being relocated or going underground, so now is the time to use your photographic talents to document the way our rail crossings look in the current era!

Pre-1990 Open Theme we encourage locals to find the treasures in their photo albums and get scanning. Any pre-1990 photograph that features a part of the district, such as a park, shops or streets within the City of Armadale could be awarded a prize.

The competition runs from 1 February to 31 March 2019. The online entry form will only be available during this time, but we encourage you to start taking photos now!
Winners will receive cash prizes and an acrylic mounted print of their image. For full details of prizes, and the Terms & Conditions click here
