CEN is the peak environmental organisation on the Central Coast. Its vision is to stand up for ecological sustainable development (ESD) and oppose threats to it. To mark its 25th anniversary CEN want to encourage everyone on the Central Coast to #Reconnect with nature. Central Coast residents love nature but, in the rush and bustle of everyday life, we often don’t take enough time to immerse ourselves in nature’s beauty, poetry and therapy.
#Reconnect is an opportunity for amateur photographers and short film makers to share their talent.
Entries are open until July 31 and the winners will be announced at CEN’s Wildplant Nursery sale day on August 6.
All photographs will be exhibited at a later date and the winning film and photograph will each receive a $500 cash prizes.
The #Reconnect competition costs $5 per photograph or short film entered.
Read the conditions of entry, send us your completed entry form(s) and $5 per entry and begin to immerse yourself in the creative process.
