Golden Plains Shire Council’s Spring in the Shire photography competition returns in 2021.

Presented every two years, the Spring in the Shire photography competition is returning in 2021, with entries open from Monday 13 September to Sunday 31 October. This year’s competition theme is ‘What we share”, and photographers of any skill level are encouraged to capture this theme through their lens. Images can be of anything, place or person (with appropriate permissions) that represents the Shire’s unique surrounds.

In 2021, there are 3 categories, with 30 photographs to be selected for an exhibition and go in the running to win a major cash prize. This year’s categories are:

  • Major Prize (18 years and older)
  • Young Adult Prize (13 to 17 years)
  • Junior Prize (Up to 12 years)

The winners of the Major and Young Adult Prizes will each receive $300, with the Junior Prize winner to take home $200. Council is proud to partner with Stockdale & Leggo Bannockburn and Healthwise Pharmacy Bannockburn to offer these great prizes.
