Entries now open for Snapshots of Birregurra

Birregurra Arts Group invites you to take part in the inaugural “Snapshots of Birregurra” Amateur Photography Competition – an annual event coinciding with the Birregurra Weekend Festival.

Our tagline this year is “We know a picture tells a thousand words! What does your story of Birregurra look like?” Entry is free and all photos will be proudly displayed over the Birregurra Festival weekend. Awards will be based on creativity and uniqueness more so than technical ability. Entrants certainly don't have to live in Birregurra; photos just need to be a narrative of the area. Portraits or candid scenes are welcome, as are entertaining “set up” scenes – think The Beatles iconic cover art for Abbey Road.

Photo submissions should be mounted on A4 entry forms which will be exhibited during the weekend festival. There are two categories – Under 13s and Open. Each category has a first place prize of $100 and a runner up of $50. All entries also go into the running for the Len Robb People’s Choice Award ($100).

The Details:

Entries close on 26 September 2014 and can be submitted at Birregurra General Store, Colac Library or Forrest Brewery.

Awards will judged by photographer Tim Lucas as well as three Birregurra community members. Awards for Under 13s and Open categories will be announced at the Birregurra Arts Show on Friday 10th October. Winners will also be contacted by phone or email. The Len Robb People’s Choice Award will be judged by the public on Saturday 11th October during Birregurra Festival and announced on the main stage on Sunday 12th October.

This fantastic new community arts initiative is bought to us by Birregurra Arts Group and supported by Birregurra Mail, Birregurra Festival and Birregurra Art Show. If you’d like any further information, email birreartsgroup@gmail.com.
