Kwinana is known as the ‘City of Trees’ and this is now the theme of the Love My Kwinana - Photography Competition 2022.
Entrants are invited to capture Kwinana’s trees on camera to celebrate our lush urban canopy and natural wetland and bushland settings.
Photographs must be taken by the entrant within the City of Kwinana’s suburbs.
Entrants may submit a maximum of three entries in one of the competition age categories.
The three age categories and prizes include:
Adult – entrants 25+ ($400)
Youth – entrants aged 13 to 25 years ($300)
Children – entrants aged 12 and under ($200)
Entries are open from 2 May to 27 May and will be assessed by a panel of five judges who will announce the winning entries at the end of June.
Mayor Carol Adams said competition entries would be exhibited by the City of Kwinana at a later date.
“I look forward to seeing the diverse perspectives people have of Kwinana, the ‘City of Trees’, captured creatively and celebrated through the lens of a camera,” Mayor Adams said.
