 Capture Fairfield Visual Arts and Photography Competition with banner with camera, paintbrush and palette illustration

2023 competition winners announced!

Council's Capture Fairfield Visual Arts & Photography Competition is held annually. The competition aims to showcase local talent and promote the culture and character of our City. 

Held each year, Capture Fairfield is an opportunity for the community to promote and explore Fairfield City's diversity, and natural and built environment. Each year the competition builds from strength to strength and this year was no exception.

Judges made their selection based on the skill, strong visual appeal and response to this year’s ‘Love Where You Live’ theme. 

The quality of the entries was impressive and Council extends their gratitude to everyone who entered.
