Mundaring & Hills Historical Society and Shire of Mundaring Libraries are excited to announce 'SNAPPED': the Shire of Mundaring's Historic 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? If so, please enter the competition and be in the running to win $100!
We want to see your unpulished photographs, from before the year 2000, that depict 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.
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 200 words) of 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 Snapped: Historic Photo Competition flyer here.
What outcomes do we hope to see out of the competition?
We hope this competition gives people the chance to share their photographs and in doing so, enrich the collected history of the region. All entries will be added to the M&HH's Local History Collection and to the Shire of Mundaring Libraries' digitised Images Collection. The copyright ownership will be retained by the original photographer.
