Entries are now open for the Lennox Head Lions Club’s annual photographic competition, on the theme of ‘Lennox Head, Then and Now’.

The best photos will be used in the Lions’ 2022 calendar, along with historical photos. There’s over $600 prize money up for grabs in sections including Junior and Open, with a special focus on disappearing landmarks and endangered natural features.

Paul Bryant from Lennox Head Lions told The Echo, ‘What makes this year special, is that 2022 will see the celebration of 100 years since the first development plan was accepted for our village.’

Competition coordinator Christine Stores said, ‘The Lens on Lennox Photography Competition attempts to capture and highlight the essence of this wonderful village and to instil a sense of pride in everything that is Lennox, as well as give exposure to local photographers and aspiring photographers.’

Then and now

Ms Stores told The Echo, ‘We recognise that Lennox Head has a rich indigenous history with key areas of significance being the Bora Ring and Lake Ainsworth.

‘In 2022 it will be one hundred years since the first sub-division and land auction and the naming of Lennox Head and Lake Ainsworth.

‘Our Facebook and Instagram page has over 100 photos from earlier days. We would like entrants to use those as inspiration but highlight Lennox in the present, so future generations can look back on Lennox Head 2021.’

Christine Stores said that as well as the prizemoney and calendar opportunities, local photographers will have a chance to have their photos selected for a display at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre during June/July.

She said entry fees would help the Lions Club to support the community.

Entries for Lens on Lennox close on 23 May. More information here: https://lennoxheadlions.com/photo.
