Photo Comp

WIN! $50 Croydon Camera House vouchers & Cash Prizes!

Celebrate Mooroolbark is excited to announce the launch of a brand new monthly photo competition! Thanks to Croydon Camera House we have 1 x $50 voucher to give away every month of the competition AND all entrants go back into the final draw to win cash prizes, thanks to Sonja Terpstra MP.

For the upcoming festival we are reflecting upon this moment in time in Mooroolbark, with the overarching theme, Snapshot ’21.

We don’t need to remind you what the world is going through right now. Every one of us is affected by the pandemic, with all the restrictions, emotions and changes that come with it. Coupled with the level crossing removal and construction of the Skyrail, new station and multi-level carpark, Mooroolbark will never be quite the same again.

This is why we have been inspired to capture life in this moment, and preserve our memories for future generations.

The Photo Competition

At the beginning of each month, a new theme will be announced on the Celebrate Mooroolbark website blog, Instagram and Facebook along with the prize for that month.

  • November theme: Food & Dining (now closed)
  • December theme: Nature at Home (now closed)
  • January theme: Black & White Portraits (now closed)
  • February theme: Wheel Life – (now closed)
  • March theme: 👉 Scenes and Celebrations around Mooroolbark 👈 Ie. What makes you think of Mooroolbark NOW, in March 2021?
