The Murrurundi District Arts Council invites photographers to submit works in competition for the 2011 Murrurundi Keddies Pastoral Photographic Prize. This biennial prize, valued at $10,000, has been initiated by the Keddie family and aims to promote excellence in contemporary photography. Entrants to the prize are asked to interpret this year’s theme – RURAL ACTION- in colour. All entries will be assessed and selected by a panel of judges.
