About PhotoVoice

The City of Rockingham is excited to be holding the 2021 Act Belong Commit PhotoVoice Competition.

PhotoVoice involves participants taking photo/s showcasing how they Act Belong Commit in their lives, and then including a sentence or short paragraph (25 words maximum) explaining the photo to give it a "voice". Community members are invited to submit up to three photos into the competition under their age group. There are 10 prize categories awarded including cash prizes.  The competition will open on Sunday 1 August 2021 and will close at 5pm on 31 August 2021.  The entry link will be available here in August 2021.
 
The City will hold an exhibition of the 100 finalist images from Friday 1 October to Tuesday 12 October at the Gary Holland Community Centre for the community to enjoy and vote for their favourite photo.
