Put Wagga in your frame for Sister City photo competition - 14 March 2016

If you’re a budding photographer or have taken a spectacular photo of Wagga, then consider entering the Sister City photo competition.

Give it Your Best Shot is a competition to showcase what is truly great about Wagga to our Sister City friends in Kunming, China.

“Grab your camera or smartphone and start snapping – think Lake Albert sunsets, the Murrumbidgee River, rolling paddocks or the vibrancy of our suburbs and neighbourhoods,” Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Rod Kendall said.

“The competition is looking for photographs to give the people of Wagga’s Chinese sister-city Kunming a glimpse of the local landscapes, customs and culture that make Wagga unique.”

Give it Your Best Shot is designed to strengthen ties between Wagga Wagga and Kunming, as well as eight other Australia - southwest China sister-city pairs.

Shortlisted photographers from Wagga will be invited to have their works displayed in Kunming at a community exhibition.

One grand prize winner from Australia and one from southwest China will win flights, accommodation and a week of activities in their Sister City so they can experience it firsthand. Runners up will win return flights between Australia and southwest China.

To enter, submit photos online via the Sister City website, www.sistercitycompetition.com.au.

Entries are open from 14 March to 14 April, 2016.

Wagga entrants must be 18-years or older, Wagga residents and an Australia citizen and hold a vaild passport with more than six months validity from December 2016.

Full list of terms and conditions available on the website.

The competition is an initiative of the Australian Consulate-General in Chengdu.
