Photos Tell Your Stories - Competition!

Wyndham residents are being invited to enter an amateur photo competition which aims to showcase how locals came together during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Non-profit group, Bridge Builders for Australasia (BBFA), is running the Wyndham 2020 & Beyond, You, Me, Stronger Together competition.

The competition is supported by the Manor Lakes Community Fund, an initiative of the Dennis Family Corporation.

BBFA’s volunteers aim to reconnect overlooked people back into the community, alleviate standards of living for disadvantaged people and assist the poor and those in need in developing countries.

The group has organised projects in the Philippines, India and Australia.

BBFA president Melba Waugh said the group has organised the photo contest to document how Wyndham stood strong as a community during the pandemic.

The competition, for Wyndham residents aged 18 and older, is open to images which tell a visual story of hope, courage, innovation, resilience or patience during the pandemic period.

Pictures can be of a person, a group or events within Wyndham and must have been taken between January 2020 and March 2021.

No digital photo editing is allowed.

The competition’s first, second and third prize winners will receive $300, $200 and $100 respectively.

Entries close on March 31.
