The judges want to know what you think are the Icons of Brunswick Heads, which is the theme of this year’s annual Simple Pleasures photo competition, the annual snap of what’s happening in and around town.
If you’ve taken a shot of iconic Bruns in the last twelve months you are eligible to enter the competition. The aim is to highlight the town with a selection of entries chosen to appear in a glossy calendar and postcard series.
Paul Begg is an icon of the competition itself; he was the overall winner in both 2010 and 2012 and was the Over-55s winner in 2015. Paul has also had numerous calendar appearances.
Focus on theme
Paul says staying focused on the theme is important. ‘Keep thinking of the theme when you find something you want to take a photo of,’ says Paul.
‘Does it fit the theme? Is the photo in focus? Look at the depth of field – can I recognise Brunswick Heads in my photo?’ he suggests.
‘It’s fun, it gets you thinking, and it’s an opportunity to look at Bruns in a different way. It’s a great community event, especially seeing all the photos in the shop windows.’
Entries for the comp close on August 31 and are on display around the village until 20 September with the Awards Ceremony on Sunday 15 September at the Bruns Bowls Club. For more information from the links at www.brunswickheads.org.au, or email [email protected]
