The winners of the inaugural #CaptureFairfield photography competition were announced at Fairfield City Council’s meeting on Tuesday 25 July and presented with their prizes.

In its first year, Council’s photography competition attracted 133 entries that captured stunning images of Fairfield City.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said he was impressed by the entries, which had motivated people to discover some of our City’s hidden gems.

“I congratulate everyone who submitted their photographs and hope the competition has inspired people to go outdoors and take in the beauty of our City,” Mayor Carbone said.

“The images captured our City in a light we haven’t seen before. As I looked through each entry I felt great pride for our City and its people.

“I would like to thank everyone who participated. We are thrilled by the huge response from the community and look forward to many more entries in future years.
