WHETHER you’re a professional photographer or you’ve just been in the right place at the right time and snapped an amazing photo on your phone, the time is running out to enter this year’s Senex Energy sponsored Wandoan Photo Challenge.
With $5,500 up for grabs across three categories, Wandoan Photo Challenge coordinator Helen Golden said the level of entries had been encouraging and judges are waiting to see if the usual last-minute flurry occurs.
“Kids at Play and Adults at Play are all about showing that we play as hard as we work out here,” she said.
“We hope the photos will showcase not only the wonderful opportunities many of us take for granted but also all the different events we have from camel races to volunteer run playgroups which are the beating heart of our community.”
Senex community relations manager Trevor Robertson said the ‘Play’ categories opened the competition up to a lot of newer entrants this year.
“Senex is delighted to support the competition which has become a standout for the community and some of the play images featured on the WPC’s social media accounts really do bring a smile to your face,” he said.
“We’ve seen photos from mums or dads, teachers and everyone in between and there’s no doubt that play brings a lot of joy to people who live in Wandoan or surrounds or are even just visiting!”
There is also the Small Town, Big Country category for anything which isn’t play related. Although the Wandoan Show is cancelled, the competition will going online as it did during 2020.
Judge Paula Heelan will select her Top 30 shortly after entries close.
They will be displayed on the website where people can vote for their favourite to decide the People’s Choice winners.
Entries close in just two days at 11:59PM this Friday, March 18 with results announced at the Wandoan Bowls Club on Friday, April 1.
