AS part of Mental Health Week, Glenorchy Library and the Glenorchy City Council are running a photography competition with the theme being ‘Belonging, Awareness, Connection’.

The competition will have a professional and amateur category to encourage people of all abilities to enter.

Entries opened on 1 September and close 30 September, with voting open to the public during Mental Health Week in October.

Mental Health Week runs from 9 to 16 October and aims to engage communities in activities that promote mental health and wellbeing.

It also aims to increase understanding and reduce stigma about mental illness.

“The photography competition is a wonderful way to express yourself and bring focus to positive life experiences,” Glenorchy Library community learning coordinator Terri Maher said.

“Grab your phone or camera and get thinking about how you can capture Belonging, Awareness, Connection.”

For more information, visit the Glenorchy Library or the Glenorchy Library Facebook page.

To receive an entry form, email glenorchy.library@education.tas.gov.au or visit the Glenorchy Library.
