The City of Kwinana will launch its Love My Kwinana Competition next month with the theme djilba bonar (season of djilba) to mark the arrival of spring.
Djilba is a transitional time of the year, during August and September with very cold and clear days combining with warmer, rainy and windy days mixing with the occasional sunny day or two.
It is a time to look for the emerging yellow and cream flowers such as the acacias, combined with some vivid and striking blues.
Mayor Carol Adams said entries to the popular competition will open next month with cash prizes up for grabs.
“We have three age categories this year for adults, youth and children with cash prizes for each category, with $400 for the adult category winner, so we can’t wait to see what you come up with,” she said.
“A panel of judges will assess the entries, and all images celebrating the theme will be exhibited in the Carol Adams Lounge of the Dairus Wells Library and Information Centre, and the Kwinana Public Library.
“Winners will be announced at an opening event for the public on Friday, October 6, from 5pm to 6.30pm,” she said.
Photo entries from previous City of Kwinana photography competitions have been featured in the City’s community calendar, distributed to all households at the end of the year.
To enter, simply take a photo within the Kwinana community that shows what the djilba bonar means to you.
Entries open September 4 and close September 22, 2023.
