Now in its sixth year SNAP! is a photography competition open to young photographers aged from 12 to 24, who live, work or study in the northern rivers .
The Byron Youth Service (BYS) is currently accepting entries into this free competition which will culminate in a public exhibition at the Byron Youth Activity Centre on Thursday April 3, the beginning of Youth Week.
This year’s SNAP! theme is Beauty & The Beast calling for images of the wonderful world we live in, be it good or bad. There is over $2000 cash in nine categories including a People’s Choice Award winner who will receive $1000 in cash. Young people will also have the opportunity to sell their work through the exhibition.
SNAP! has prize sections donated by local businesses for winners and highly commended in four age groups 12-14, 15-17, 18-20 & 21-24, in colour or black & white. Each entrant will be allowed to submit a maximum of three images.
The photos will also be printed and mounted for the exhibition (at no cost to the entrant).
Young people who are interested in making an entry into the competition need to lodge their details with BYS by March 25. Registration information can be accessed on www.bys.org.au
This year they will also be launching a retrospective profile book of all the winning artists from the last five years!
