Images

It is a fine line between having a passion and it becoming an obsession.

In 2020, the inaugural Youth Photography Competition asked young people across the Northern Beaches to capture life through the lens by submitting an original photograph responding to the theme, passion/obsession.

Photographs were judged by a panel of staff and industry professionals. Winners and highly commended artists received a cash prize and a print of their image. Congratulations to our competition winners and all our entrants.
