Newsflash! 2018 Winners Announced

The Henry Lawson Festival has a long and distinguished history in supporting and promoting The Arts in NSW and beyond. Running continuously since 1958, the Festival is the oldest running festival of the Arts in NSW.

We are pleased to announce the Photographic Competition and Exhibition is once again going to contribute to and enrich this diverse celebration of The Art.

Our Photographic Competition has always been held in high standing. Photography is one of the four statuette categories. The 2018 overall Photographic winner will receive the Festival’s statuette by Michael Mandelc, Katoomba. The statuette is cast in bronze and depicts Henry Lawson’s “The Drover’s Wife”.

The Photography Competition is a platform for photographers to share their skills and gain public recognition, while the exhibition is a source of appreciation and enjoyment for the visitors to Grenfell’s Henry Lawson Festival of The Arts.
