Mundaring & Hills Historical Society and Shire of Mundaring Libraries are excited to announce Snapped! Shire of Mundaring Historic Photo Competition is back for 2021! This year we have also introduced a Caption the Photo competition.
Do you have photos that show how much, or how little, local places in the Shire of Mundaring have changed over the last 30 or 40 years? Did you take photos years ago of a local arts or sports event? You could win $100!
We want to see your unpublished photographs from before the year 2000 depicting people, places, or events connected to the Shire of Mundaring! All photographs will be eligible for the Open Award, judged by one representative from Mundaring & Hills Historical Society and one representative from the Shire of Mundaring. The People's Choice Award will be judged by a public poll on the Shire of Mundaring Libraries' Facebook page.
The competition runs from Monday 2 August and closes on Monday 23 August. Online submissions will be able to made on this page from Monday 2 August.
The People's Choice poll will open on the libraries' Facebook page on Monday 30 August and closes on Monday 6 September.
What are we looking for?
Don't worry if your photograph is not artistic in form! What is important is the historical reality shown in the image. Each photograph submitted must be accompanied by a short description (maximum of 50 words) of the people/places/events depicted and their relationship to the Shire of Mundaring. The year or decade the photo was taken is also required as it provides context for the image. You can download the photo competition flyer here.
