A Pil­bara am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion de­signed to pro­mote com­mu­nity in­volve­ment and good men­tal health is back for an­other year, with en­tries now open.

The Pil­bara branch of Ac­tBe­long-Com­mit is run­ning the Pho­toVoice com­pe­ti­tion in Kar­ratha and Onslow over Au­gust and Septem­ber for a sec­ond year af­ter its de­but in 2016, which at­tracted 128 en­tries across both towns.

The com­pe­ti­tion asks peo­ple to take a photo in line with the Ac­tBe­long-Com­mit men­tally healthy mes­sage and send it in with a short de­scrip­tion of its mean­ing to the pho­tog­ra­pher, giv­ing it a “voice”.

Act-Be­long-Com­mit health pro­mo­tion co-or­di­na­tor Shel­leyAnne Hee­lan said Pho­toVoice showed the wide va­ri­ety of ways for peo­ple to con­nect with their com­mu­ni­ties and main­tain good men­tal health. “Pho­toVoice re­ally aims to get peo­ple re­flect­ing on the many pos­i­tives of liv­ing in the Pil­bara — things like our beau­ti­ful land­scape, wel­com­ing com­mu­ni­ties and op­por­tu­ni­ties to get in­volved,” she said.

Pho­toVoice is open to peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties, with en­tries di­vided into 18-and-over or un­der-18 cat­e­gories. For in­for­ma­tion visit act­be­long­com­mit. org.au/com­pe­ti­tions.
