Photos part of awards
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.
