For the third year running, Federal Member for Newcastle Sharon Claydon has today launched the 2023 Newcastle Photography Competition, calling on all photographers, whether amateur, hobbyist, or professional, to capture the essence of Newcastle on camera.
“The winning photograph will be showcased on my annual Christmas card that will be sent to every household in the city as well as businesses and community groups in our area and dignitaries such as Members of Parliament, Ambassadors, the Prime Minister, and the Governor-General.” Ms Claydon said.
“The winner will also receive a $150 voucher to spend at MacLean's Booksellers or any one of the dozens of creative, independent and locally owned Makers and Traders Newcastle businesses. And $50 vouchers will go to three runners up!”
Ms Claydon said the photo must be taken in the electorate of Newcastle by a Novocastrian.
“I’ll be keeping my eye out for iconic images that capture the essence of Newcastle – our people, our landmarks and natural beauty, our sense of humour, daily life, or festive cheer.”
“The photo can be taken on any sort of camera, smartphone or drone, but it must have been taken in 2023” Ms Claydon said.
“You’ll need to get in quick because entries close in a few short weeks on Friday 10 November 2023.”
“After the success of previous years, I really look forward to seeing this year’s entries”.
“This competition is always a highlight, it really showcases the creativity and unique vision of Novocastrians”
