The competition offers a rewarding and creative opportunity to explore and celebrate our local precincts.
The Local Lens Photo Competition runs over the course of one year and is divided into four rounds, each with their own theme. Each round has a submission and judging period that runs over three months.
There are two sections for entries: senior for those aged 16+ and junior for young people 15 years and under. The same theme and time frame is used for both sections.
The competition will be open to photos taken within the City of Sydney precincts of Green Square, Alexandria, Everleigh, Redfern, Waterloo, Surry Hills, Chippendale, Darlinghurst, Glebe, Potts Point, Darlington, Newtown, Pyrmont, Ultimo, Wooloomooloo, St Peters, Barangaroo, CBD, Paddington, Kings Cross, Haymarket and Annandale.
Each round is judged by a locally known photographer, and the theme is based upon their own style. At the end of the year, an overall winner will be announced, and there are plans for an exhibition where a selection of the best entries can be shown.
