Fairfield City Council today launched an exciting new photography competition designed to capture a range of images across the City.

Community members are encouraged to show off their talents and enter the ‘#CaptureFairfield’ competition..

Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone, encourages residents to submit their photos and help to celebrate our fabulous City.

“I am really excited that we are launching this new photography competition as it is a great way to showcase people’s talents while also revealing more visual expressions about our great City,” he said.

“The themes for photo entries are in line with this year’s Local Government Week themes of Discovery, Diversity and Democracy. We also have different categories for school-age and older photographers.

“Winning entries will be publically displayed to the community during Local Government Week from 31 July to 6 August at the administration cente, libraries, leisure centres and at the mobile offices in town centres.

“Our #CaptureFairfield competition is a great way to celebrate our City. We are known for our diverse range of people, cultures and experiences and I look forward to seeing the broad range of photos which are entered.

“I encourage everyone to get out and about in our City and take some amazing photos of what they see.

Entries must be submitted online through Council’s website at www.fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au/capturefairfield. They can also be shared on Instagram using the #CaptureFairfield hashtag although Instagram images will not constitute a formal competition entry.
