Focus on teens

SNAPSHOT is an annual photographic competition for teenagers produced and presented by Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.

Entry is free and there is a prize pool of $1400 for two age brackets: those 13-15 and those 16-19.

This year the theme is Transformation/Metamorphosis. This is the seventh year SNAPSHOT has been presented and last year it was inundated with 800 photographs from around the world, the largest participation in its history.

The selection is rigorous and only 300 photographs are chosen for the exhibition.

Teenagers are being asked to submit one photograph through penrithregionalgallery.org.

Digital manipulation of photographs is acceptable but not essential.

All entries are to be submitted digitally and will be accepted until Wednesday, August 14.

There is also a chance to join Team Snapshot - Teenage Event Management Committee and gain experience in event management, marketing and promotion.

The free exhibition will be on show September 21-November 10.

The aim of the exhibition is to encourage young people to take part in the arts.
