Suburban sights in the lens for awards

PHOTOGRAPHERS out and about in the suburbs of Kingston can win a share of more than $7000 in prize money in the annual Lens Mist photography competition.

Now in its eighth year, Lens Mist has traditionally celebrated Melbourne’s stunning beaches and environment around Port Philip Bay, but this year is different.

The Lens Mist Photography Award and Exhibition in 2018 is inviting artists to place the municipality of Kingston under the microscope and capture something they have never noticed before.

“I encourage artists of all ages and abilities to go on a journey and discover your local suburbs and the unknown places within them,” Kingston mayor Cr David Eden said.

“You have the opportunity to book in for a Kingston Arts Lens Mist bus tour around sites of Kingston to find inspiration.”

Bus tour places departing from Moorabbin’s Kingston City Hall are limited:

  • Friday 3 November, 10am
  • Friday 1 December, 10am

Artists are encouraged to think creatively, be original and demonstrate technique.

Twenty works will be shortlisted by a Curatorial Committee.

The shortlisted images will be printed, framed, exhibited and will be eligible for one of three awards that will be displayed at Mordialloc Food, Wine and Music Festival and at DFO Moorabbin.
