29 Apr What’s your snapshot of a healthy community?
What does a healthy community look like to you? If you can capture such a photo you might just become the winner of Timboon and District Healthcare Service’s (TDHS) second annual photography competition.
Entries opened today and close on Monday, July 15 with $150 up for grabs for 1st place, $75 for 2nd and $30 for 3rd. Entrants are also being offered the chance to have their shots displayed in Timboon and District Healthcare Service publications.
Last year’s entries included images from spectacular vistas of local natural beauty to positive images of aging and various recreational opportunities in the area.
TDHS acting chief executive officer Rebecca Van Wollingen said the Health and Wellness Photography Competition was a great way for the creative community to bring the importance of proactive health into the spotlight.
She said publications like the TDHS annual report and quality of care calendar were widely circulated in the region, in addition to a number of state government departments.
“In addition to the prize money on offer, having your art recognised in this way is a wonderful exposure opportunity and something quite special for any budding artist’s portfolio,” she said.
Health & Wellness is the theme for the photography competition. Ms Van Wollingen said the competition was open to anyone currently residing within the Timboon and District Healthcare Service region.
“All entries must attempt to capture Timboon and District Healthcare Service’s ‘Vision For The Future’, which is ‘working together for a healthy community’ and also show locations or aspects of the local area,” she said.
Competition entry forms and terms and conditions are available from Timboon and District Healthcare Service’s website www.timboonhealthcare.com.au/photo-competition-2019 or directly from the organisation’s front reception area.
“We look forward to seeing what our community believes health and wellness looks like in 2019,” Ms Van Wollingen said.
