Share your view of Leeton

Western Riverina Arts are running a photography competition to coincide with the Penny Paniz Art Prize this year.

The theme of “Leeton's identity" encourages local scenes and faces.

"We want people to share their view of the town," said Derek Motion, Regional Arts Development Officer.

"This competition is open to photographers of any skill level, using any camera device. Photography is an increasingly accessible medium, with many mobile phones having cameras."

To enter, upload your photo on Western Riverina Art's Facebook page and then tell your friends to 'like' it. Western Riverina Arts will be shortlisting up to a dozen of the most popular images as finalists in the competition.

Shortlisted entries will be exhibited and a popular vote will decide the winner, who will receive $500.

"This competition aims to get a larger audience involved in the arts in Leeton," said Mr Motion. "We recognise that a good photo is one that connects with viewers, so it will be viewers who decide the winning entry."

"We want everyone to enter this competition because everyone has a view and the diversity of views will show what's great about living in Leeton."

Entries close on Friday 11 April 2014. For details further information about the competition and conditions, please see the entry form available on Leeton Shire Council and Western Riverina Arts websites.
