Simple Pleasures Photo Competition

2016 Brunswick Heads Simple Pleasures Photo Competition


Every year the Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce runs the Simple Pleasures Photo Competition.  The theme for the competition is COLOURS OF BRUNS.  We invite visitors to our town and locals alike to showcase our beautiful town and local businesses using their photography skills.  We are always delighted by the quality of entries in every category. 

Generous cash prizes are up for grabs in each category of the competition.  WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM LOCAL BUSINESSES WHO WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT AND SPONSOR OUR 2016 PHOTO COMP. This year we have a $50 sponsorship choice to advertise on our instragram page.  Call Cherie: 6685 1003.

The competition officially opens the week after the Old & Gold Festival (in Brunswick Heads) Monday 20th June 2016.  The closing date will be Friday 12 August. 

A panel of reputable local photography experts judge the competition and an award evening is held in September for the finalists, winners and their families.
