Spin Photography Competition for Primary and Secondary Students
SPIN - Photography Competition - Primary and Secondary Students 2022.pdf

We’re welcoming the world to Wollongong this September. As the world’s best cyclists compete right here in the UCI Road World Championships, we’re rolling out the fun with Spin Fest – a city-wide community celebration. As part of Spin Fest, Wollongong Art Gallery invites students across the state to enter our Spin Photography Competition. 

Your spin photography entries do not have to be strictly bike related. The theme of spin can be broad. Think about the word ‘spin’ and the many meanings it has associated with it. What makes you spin? Can you capture the act of spinning or twirling something? There are many possibilities, and we would love to see them!
Deadlines: All entries are due by Monday 29 August, 5pm
Announcement of Winners: All winners will be announced on Monday 19 September
Open to students who study in NSW.
Primary category: Years 5 & 6
Secondary categories: Years 7 & 8, Years 9 & 10 and Years 11 & 12
