Photography Competition

Photography Competition 2013



The faces of Waratah-Wynyard - People, pride and passion Photography Competition was conducted in the second half of 2013. Finalists in the competition were on display at the Wonders of Wynyard Information Centre until the end of October 2013.

This competition was about showcasing the people who make up Waratah-Wynyard and what do they do. Just under 100 entrants submitted entries that captured the many characters that make Waratah-Wynyard such a great place to live. We received pictures of people at work, play and everything in between.

The images were captured in the Waratah-Wynyard municipal area. From Boat Harbour, Corinna, Flowerdale, Preolenna, Sisters Beach, Somerset, Wynyard and Yolla and beyond the Waratah-Wynyard Council called for entries that share what you think is great about the people in our municipal area. Council will use selected competition entries to promote our community as a great place to live, work and play.

The Photography Competition sought entries in the following sections: Primary School, High School and Open. There was also be an award for the People's Choice. Voting was available by viewing the finalists at the Wonders of Wynyard Information Centre.

Prizes included

  • Primary - First prize $100, and recognition of a highly commended photograph.
  • High School - First prize $100, and recognition of a highly commended photograph.
  • Open - First prize $800 voucher from Harvey Norman; Second prize consists of a cruise for two people with World Heritage Cruises and one nights’ accommodation at Motel Strahan; and Third prize is a meal voucher at the Jetty Restaurant at Best Western Murchison Lodge Somerset.
  • The People's Choice winner will be given an accommodation package at the Corinna Wilderness Experience.

While photographs were eligible if taken within the Waratah-Wynyard local government area, Council invited anyone who loves spending time in our backyard to participate. So whether you live, work or play in the Waratah-Wynyard area entries were called for to help us tell your, your family, friends and others about the people that make this such a great place to live.

Images were exhibited at the Wonders of Wynyard Information Centre and online. Winners were recognised at the exhibition launch at the Wonders of Wynyard Information Centre on Thursday 3 October, 2013 from 5.30pm.

Council reserves the right to use images for promotional purposes.
