ENTRIES are now open for the annual Kingston OptiKA photography competition and in celebration of its 10 year anniversary a new category will be introduced.

The OptiKA contest was previously known as the Lens Mist competition.

“This year, photographers and video-makers will present scenes from Kingston that respond to the theme Architecture, space and home,” Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said.

“The winning entries will share in some impressive prizes and I invite everyone to enter.”

Back in mists of time: Kim Croker’s Fishing for Fog was 2014 Lens Mist comp winner.

In this year’s competition, four prizes are up for grabs with Best Photograph winning $5000, People’s Choice Award winning $1000, the Portrait Award winning $1000 and finally the brand new category of Video Award that will win $500.

Entries for the OptiKA completion are now open and close on 1 October. The entries will be exhibited at Kingston Arts Centre in December during the Makers Festival and at DFO Moorabbin in May next year.

Entry details are available at or by calling Kingston Arts on 9556 4440.
