Water and the places connected with its heritage are often very striking visually, so Australia ICOMOS and the National Trusts of Australia are pleased to be holding a photography competition in association with the Watermarks, Water’s Heritage conference. Entry is open to Australia ICOMOS members, members of state National Trusts and all conference delegates.
The categories for the photo competition will centre on three broad water-related themes:
- Celebrating water (recreation, water features, etc.)
- Working water (Indigenous use of water, water supply, aquaculture, agriculture, industry, transport)
- Imagining water in the landscape (natural and designed landscapes)
- Photo Essay (up to six images on any one of the three conference themes)
Entries will be displayed at the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre throughout the conference. Voting in each category will be open to conference delegates. Prizes will be awarded on the second day of the conference, and the winning entries will then be showcased on the Watermarks website.
Competition entries must be submitted by Monday 17 October 2011 at the latest. Note: There is also an option to submit a complete electronic application by the above date, and then hand-deliver photographic prints to the conference venue at 8.30 am, Friday 28 October.
