Applications now open for Lens Mist Kingston Arts’ 2018 photography competition

20 October 2017

Photographers from across Melbourne are grabbing their cameras and heading into the suburbs of Kingston for a chance to win a share of over $7000 prize-money in the annual Lens Mist photography competition.

Now in its eighth year, Lens Mist has traditionally celebrated Melbourne’s stunning beaches and environment around Port Philip Bay, but this year is different.

The Lens Mist Photography Award and Exhibition in 2018 is inviting artists to place the municipality of Kingston under the microscope and capture something they have never noticed before. 

“I encourage artists of all ages and abilities to go on a journey and discover your local suburbs and the unknown places within them” said Mayor David Eden

You have the opportunity to book in for a Kingston Arts Lens Mist bus tour around sites of Kingston to find inspiration. These tours are on the following dates:

  • Friday 3 November at 10am, places are limited.
  • Friday 1 December at 10am, places are limited.

Artists are encouraged to think creatively, be original and demonstrate technique.

Twenty works will be shortlisted by a Curatorial Committee. The shortlisted images will be printed, framed, exhibited and will be eligible for one of three Awards that will be displayed at Mordialloc Food, Wine and Music Festival and at DFO Moorabbin
