Photography competition in Leeton

The Western Riverina Arts photography competition returns to coincide with the Penny Paniz Art Prize in 2015.

The theme of “Living Leeton" encourages local scenes and identities. "We want people to share their view of life in 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."

Western Riverina Arts will be shortlisting up to a dozen of the most popular images as finalists in the competition.

To enter, download an entry form from and email your photo with a brief rationale to Western Riverina Arts Regional Arts Development Officer at rado[at]westrivarts[dot]com[dot]au

All entries will be uploaded to Western Riverina Arts’ Facebook page on Tuesday 3 March 2015, where shortlisting will take place:

Ask your friends to support your image with a ‘like’. 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 in Monday 2 March. Download an entry from here.

Shown above is Rocco Pirrottina’s image ‘Travel Back in Time’ which won the Western Riverina Arts photography competition in 2014.
