This annual competition has been running since 1994 and is open to high school students in the local area. The exhibition showcases a dynamic mix of photos and short films, created by young photographers and filmmakers.

The competition comprises a range of categories, with a new category this year – ‘Inclusivity’. We see Year 12 Visual Art student Duke Weiland’s image submission ‘It’s all in the Makeup’ (above) hitting the criteria for ‘Inclusivity.’ This photograph has already become a favourite for the Prize by being posted on their Social Media.

The competition awards cash prizes of up to $2,000 and will this year be exhibited in the new Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf. 

We encourage all students with a keen interest in photography and film to enter the competition. If you need assistance, please email Ms Turnbull for help. 

We wish all the entrants good luck and we are keeping our fingers crossed for them.
