Media Release: What are you doing with your snaps?

By May 23, 2007No Comments

This year’s Maroondah City Council Photo Competition is well underway, with many wonderful entries coming in each day.

However, if you haven’t entered your favourite photo of Maroondah yet, then Councillor Alex Makin would encourage residents and visitors to Maroondah to do so very soon.

“We’re about half way through the annual competition period, so there is still plenty of time to take a photo of your favourite place or special landmark in Maroondah,” said Cr Makin.

“Don’t forget to look at photos you may have taken over last summer, special moments enjoying Maroondah’s parks and waterways, happy families or sporting shots. As long as they were taken in Maroondah and after 1 July 2006 they can be entered,” said Cr Makin.

The competition sections are across three age groups and offer a range of great prizes including cameras from Croydon Camera House, movie passes to Hoyts and Hoyts La Premiere and an Eastland shopping voucher.

Up to three photos can be entered per person with the closing date for entries being 30 June 2007.

Entry forms are available from Croydon and Ringwood Libraries, Croydon Camera House, Eastland Shopping Centre and Council’s Service Centres at Braeside Avenue, Ringwood; Civic Square, Croydon and Level 2, Eastland Shopping Centre, Ringwood.

“So whether your camera is high-tech digital or low-tech disposable, get out there and start snapping!” said Cr Makin.
