Budding young photographers are invited to capture the beauty of Meelup Park in the newly formed Friends of Meelup Regional Park’s inaugural photography competition.

Group member Kerry Grist said the competition was open to school-aged children and, as well as prizes across two age groups, the winning entries would go on display at the Dunsborough Shopping Centre, Naturaliste Community Centre and other sites throughout the region.

“It’s all about trying to encourage people to see the beauty in the regional park,” she said.

“We are really wanting to remind people how beautiful and unique that part of the world really is.”

Entries should capture some aspect of nature found in the park and be emailed to cateedwardsnow@gmail.com by Monday.

The winners will be announced at a community picnic organised by the City of Busselton, Meelup Regional Park Management Committee and Friends of Meelup.

The event will celebrate the efforts of the countless volunteers who have worked to maintain the park over the past 25 years.

All members of the public are invited to the celebration at Meelup Beach on Sunday, October 7 at 11.30am and are asked to bring their own picnic.
