Local photographers shine in hospital competition


Pure Joy by Genevieve Farrar.

Forget the Archibalds and the Packing Room prize – the vote that really counts this week is your vote in the 2017 BMDH photo competition.

Fields of lavender, furry bumblebees, oceans of tulips, brilliant bubbles and glorious sunsets are just some of the winning subjects this year and are all up for the the People’s Choice Award, now open for voting here.

This year’s competition received 120 entries, focused on the themes of colour and joy.

Voting for the People’s Choice Award is open to everyone.

“The project’s arts and culture committee had the unenviable task of selecting the 23 finalist images, which will be printed and framed in the new hospital facilities, opening soon at Mount Druitt, and in some additional areas at Blacktown Hospital,” said BMDH project stage 2 manager Robyn Campbell.

“We were delighted with the entries this year, and we’re looking forward to seeing them on the walls of our new dialysis centre and other facilities at Mount Druitt Hospital.”

Robyn said the competition was an important part of the project, promoting well-being and recovery through art and culture.

“We love this competition because it’s a creative way of engaging with our talented local community, and the images bring a touch of colour and life to the hospital,” she said.

“Congratulations to our finalists and thank you to everyone who entered; we really appreciate your support.”
