Melbourne World War One Centenary Photographic competition

Melbourne World War One Centenary Photographic competition

To contribute to Melbourne’s remembrance of The Armistice Century, Melbourne Photographic Society have launched a photographic competition with the theme of “Comradeship”.  We are hoping for hundreds of entries, of which the winning and highly commended entries will be selected to be on exhibition on 27th October at Melbourne Assembly Rooms.  There will be a prize of a £50 voucher for the winner to spend at the photographic retailer of their choice. 

The competition is open to all local photographers.  We are not looking for photographical technical excellence, just for creativity around the theme of Comradeship.  The theme is open to individual interpretation, but entries must have the Armistice centenary at their heart.

The deadline for submissions will be Friday 12th October 2018, with the winners notified on 19th October 2018. The winning entry and highly commanded entries will be on display at the Melbourne Assembly Rooms on Melbourne’s Remember day – Saturday 27th October 2018.
