Photography is a key part of Seniors Week celebrations this year and is the focus of several events.
On Tuesday a new exhibition, STRIKE, will be officially launched at the Eden Killer Whale Museum at 10am.
Guest speakers include retired fishermen Barry and Kevvy Warren who will speak on the early days of the tuna fishing industry, particularly tuna poling.
Seniors can get their own cameras out during an outdoor workshop at the picturesque Panboola Wetlands (Thursday).
Hosted by the Bega Valley Regional Gallery, you can expect some great tips on composition and camera use from the experts.
Hundreds of dollars are up for grabs in Imlay House’s all-ages photography competition, Seniors Living Life, which closes on March 22.
Manager Sheridan Leftwich said Imlay House residents are the competition judges.
“There are about 25 to 30 of them and I visit them all individually to see which photograph they like the best for our weekly competition.”
“We’ve had some great entries and the competition has been really well received.”
A weekly winner is chosen from the open division while overall winners receive $150 for first place, $100 for second and $75 for third.
Junior division (16 and under) has a major prize of a photo album from Camera House.
An exhibition and afternoon tea will be held at Imlay House, Pambula on Friday, March 22.
Entries can be posted or delivered to Imlay House, 3 Merigan Street, Pambula, or dropped off to the Eden Magnet or Merimbula News Weekly.
