The skills of amateur photographers in the City of Rockingham will soon be on display at the 11th annual Act-Belong-Commit PhotoVoice Competition exhibition, which is running from 18 September to 9 October 2019.
More than 540 entries were received for this year’s competition, with 100 set to go on display during the exhibition at the Gary Holland Community Centre.
A four person panel will judge the photos on their composition and their communication of the Act-Belong-Commit message. In this instance, photographers are required to demonstrate how they act, belong and commit to looking after their mental health.
Selected entries will then have the chance to win cash prizes in their respective categories at an awards ceremony on Wednesday 9 October 2019 at the Gary Holland Community Centre.
During the exhibition visitors will also be able to vote for their favourite photograph in the Public Choice Award category.
City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged the community to visit the exhibition in support of local arts and culture.
“In the City of Rockingham we have a large number of talented amateur photographers and some of their best work will be on display during the Act-Belong-Commit PhotoVoice Competition exhibition,” Mayor Sammels said.
“Each entrant’s work is unique and depicts some of the interesting ways people look after their mental health.
“Entry to the exhibition is free so I encourage all residents to head down and check out the wide range of fantastic photographs that will be on display.”
The Act-Belong-Commit campaign encourages community participation to increase peoples’ sense of belonging, physical activity and enhance their purpose in life.
The exhibition will be open from 9am – 5pm on Monday to Friday and from 9am – 4pm on weekends.
