WA Life photography competition
FotoFreo has finalised the arrangements for the inaugural WA Life photographic competition. WA Life is expected to become a regular event in future festivals. The theme of the competition is to capture some aspect of life in Western Australia – living in WA; at work in WA; our leisure time in WA, etc.
For FotoFreo 2012 there will be a prize pool valued at $10,000 and the First Prize will be $5,000 cash. Other prizes will include The Runner up and a Popular Choice. The competition will be open as from Monday, 12th of December, 2011 and close on Sunday, 29th of January, 2012. The winners will be announced at a special function to be held in the Moores Building on Sunday, 25th of March, the second weekend of the festival.
The WA Life competition is open to all photographers – professional, students, and enthusiasts. Employees and immediate families of the judges, promoters, printers, suppliers, providers and agencies associated with the competition are ineligible. Unless FotoFreo Volunteers are any of the above, they are eligible to participate in the competition.
There will be an entry fee of $50 per photographer and up to three (3) photographs may be submitted.
