City of Rockingham - Art and Culture

The PhotoVoice Exhibition will be held at the Gary Holland Community Centre, Kent Street, Rockingham, from Wednesday 20 September to Thursday 12 October 2017.  

Photos chosen to be exhibited will be judged during the three-week exhibition and will be in the running to win prizes in their category. All photos will be judged equally on the composition of the photograph and the communication of the Act-Belong-Commit theme. The winners will be announced at an awards evening on Wednesday 20 September 2017 at the Gary Holland Community Centre.   

During the exhibition, visitors can wander through the exhibition and cast their public choice vote. The winner of this category will also be announced at the awards night.

The PhotoVoice project covers all costs associated with printing, framing and exhibiting the selected photos.
