The winners of this year’s annual City of Kwinana photography competition have been announced, with 71 entries received.

Entries addressed the theme of Kwinana Inspires, defined as any place, person or thing the entrant felt played an inspiring role or part in their life.

All entries are now on display at the Kwinana Public Library until August 11.

Deputy Mayor Peter Feasey said the number of entries was up from 60 last year.

“We love seeing what inspires people about Kwinana through the photographic skills of those living, visiting and working in the area,” Cr Feasey said.

“The winning entries this year were all taken outdoors and featured our community’s remarkable landscapes,” he said.
