Griffith Through Your Lens
Wednesday, 31 Mar 2021Griffith City Council is asking residents to get behind their camera lens and show us what their Griffith is in a new photography competition.
Council’s Director Economic and Organisational Development, Shireen Donaldson said whether it’s our beautiful natural areas, landmarks, moments of joy in the day or unexpected delights, residents are being asked to capture what they love about Griffith.
“We want to see what makes Griffith so special from the perspective of those who live here,” said Ms Donaldson.
“Council is currently reviewing the Community Strategic Plan and part of the process is to find out from the community what they love about living here, and what they would like to see in the future.
“This photo competition aims to give residents another way of showing us what it is that keeps them in Griffith – it can be anything, the environment, the people, the food…it is completely up to you,” she added.
The competition is open to people living in the Griffith Local Government Area, aged 12 years and over. Participants are asked to submit no more than three (3) high resolution photos through Council’s Instagram and must tag @griffithcitycouncil and use #welovegriffith to make entries valid.
If you don’t have access to Instagram, you can submit your files by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org Entries must be in .jpeg format and high resolution.
“Photos will be used in an exhibition later in the year at Griffith Regional Theatre’s ArtSpace,” said Ms Donaldson.
“We will also use select photos throughout our public documents such as the Community Strategic Plan. We have prizes for the top three entries, being vouchers for $300, $150, and $100 respectively.
“Griffith is full of surprises and we would love to see how you feel about Griffith through your lens,” she said.
The competition is open from Friday 26 March 2021 and closes 6pm Sunday 16 May 2021.
