Think you can encapsulate the beauty of our City in just one image?  If so, the City’s popular Capture Nature photography competition might just be for you.

Held in recognition of World Environment Day (June 5), Capture Nature is open to all 12 to18 year olds who either live in, or attend a school within, the City of Joondalup.

Last year, Duncraig Senior High School student Sophie Hart beat a record number of entrants to win first prize for her image Finding Light.

This year’s theme is again Capture Nature: Explore your local beach, bushland and wetlands.

All photographs must be taken within the City of Joondalup and include a caption to describe what the image means to the photographer.

Entries will be judged on their creativity, composition, technique and message and prizes will be awarded for first ($300), second ($200), third ($175) and fourth place ($125).

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob expected another record number of competition entries to be set in 2018.

“As well as being home to many stunning beach, bushland and coastal areas, our City is also home to a talented and creative youth population,” he said.

“This competition provides an opportunity for young people with an interest in their local environment to explore and capture nature in its best light.”

Photographs must be submitted electronically via the online form at joondalup.wa.gov.au by 4.00pm, Tuesday 10 April.

Anyone unable to submit their entry electronically prior to the submission deadline should contact 9400 4271.
