Looking Thru The Lens - Youth Photographic Competition

Are you 12-18 years old and living in the City of Canning? Got an eye for great nature photography? Love snapping pics of the world around you?

Show us the world through your lens! Submit up to two entries into our ‘Looking through the Lens’ Youth Photography Competition and you could win an awesome prize.

All entries will be displayed in at the Riverton Library for a month-long exhibition, where the public will have the chance to vote for their favourites.

The competition is in honour of National Threatened Species Day so we’re looking for images of natural areas and the wonderful creatures that call them home.

All participants will have their photos printed for the exhibition courtesy of Harvey Norman Cannington.

Two free photographic workshops will be held during the School Holidays on Wednesday 7 October
at the Canning River Eco Education Centre.

The Youth Photo Competition is a way of acknowledging National Threatened Species Day, and creating awareness of our beautiful natural environment and the need to protect it for future generations.

Using your mobile phone or digital camera, capture something about your natural environment within the City of Canning, using photography to tell the stories of the flora, fauna and ecosystems around you that you value, and would like to see protected and preserved, now and into the future.

Thank you to our sponsors Perth NRM, Harvey Norman Cannington, Beaver Tree Services, Sunset Standup Paddleboards and Nexxt Frame Photography.

The competition commences Monday 7 September 2020 and closes 5pm, Tuesday 20 October 2020.

About National Threatened Species Day 

In 1996 the first Threatened Species Day was declared to commemorate the 60 year anniversary of the death of the last remaining Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) in 1936.

Threatened Species Day is all about highlighting the plants, animals and ecosystems that are under threat and encouraging us to think about how we might protect them in the future.

The day also celebrates all the amazing work being undertaken by researchers, conservationists, community experts and volunteers. Everyone can help in their own small way click link link here for more information.
