Heritage Bank’s Photographic Awards close soon

Time is running out to enter Heritage Bank’s Photographic Awards to be in contention for a share of $8000 in prize money.

Heritage Bank CEO Mr John Minz said the awards, now in their 25th year, would close on 17 May, with winners to be announced on 18 June.

“For the first time there’s an option to enter online, and there’s the added bonus of no entry fee,” Mr Minz said.

“There are two categories - ‘Entertainment – Life is a Stage’ and the open category means any subject can be captured.”

Mr Minz encouraged photographers to “think outside the square” when interpreting what would fit under the themed section.

“You can find inspiration in anything you find amusing, pleasing or entertaining, it’s not just limited to theatre or the arts,” he said.

A panel of three judges will award a number of prizes, including three under the Young Photographer’s Award in 7-9 years,10-13 years, and 14-17 years age groups. A separate award will also be presented to the best entrant aged under 25 years.

The top 50 images will go on display in an exhibition at the USQ Arts Gallery in Toowoomba from 18 June - 12 July 2013.
