The Capture Your Wanneroo Experience competition opened on Monday, with the focus in 2016 on people enjoying experiences within the City.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said it encouraged people to explore local destinations in summer, with the deadline for entries on February 29.

“The City of Wanneroo is a vibrant place to live and we’d love to see entries capture happy moments,” she said.

“Each year, I am in awe of the beauty and creativity of each entry and I am sure this year we will see similar high quality.”

Photographs must be taken within the Wanneroo region and can feature events, locals at the beach or anything that reflects people enjoying themselves.

There is $3000 in cash prizes up for grabs and both professional and amateur photographers can enter the competition.

The snaps will be judged on their ability to capture the unique sense of place, as well as composition, focus, use of light and creativity.

The Instagram category introduced in 2015 will also continue this year, with hashtag #discoverwanneroo2016 required for entry.

There is also a category for youth entrants.

Some of the winning images will feature in the City’s 2017 calendar. For more information, visit wanneroo.wa. gov.au/photographycompetition.
