Photos part of awards

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr Pho­to­graphs can be sub­mit­ted through the City of Kar­ratha’s events sec­tion on its web­site.

Prepa­ra­tions are tak­ing place for the Point Sam­son Kids’ Arts Awards and, for the first time, dig­i­tal photography will fea­ture in the hall.

The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all young City of Kar­ratha res­i­dents be­tween kindy and Year 12.

Point Sam­son Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion event co-or­di­na­tor Clau­dia Kraus said with ev­ery­one car­ry­ing a cam­era around these days, it made sense to in­clude a photography cat­e­gory.

“We’ve been run­ning it for about nine years, and it sort of started with my chil­dren be­ing quite cre­ative,” she said.

“It’s some­thing dif­fer­ent to sports and danc­ing and mu­sic.

“It is a great buzz for the kids too, to see their art­work hang­ing up on the walls.”

En­tries in the com­pe­ti­tion can be dropped off at any of the li­braries in the City of Kar­ratha by Au­gust 2.
