‘Why Gwydir Region?' Competition

Monday 30th of September 2013

A new competition has been launched this week asking residents of the Gwydir Shire to show the world with their photos why it is fantastic to live in the Gwydir Region.

The ‘Why Gwydir Region’? is part of the successful Come On Inland campaign for Regional Development Australia Northern Inland (RDANI), which focuses on attracting businesses and families to relocate to the Northern Inland Region.

“To complement this campaign, we are interested in seeing from local residents photos that showcase the best of their town or region,” explains RDANI Executive Officer, Nathan Axelsson. “The main judging criteria will focus on photos that best depict the local area.”

“These competitions will alternate between photo competitions and word competitions and will be rolled out throughout the Northern Inland region during the next few months. We hope they will appeal to both photographers and wordsmiths alike,” said Mr Axelsson.

“There is no stronger or compelling advertising than hearing from local people.  We really hope that each local community will see these competitions as a wonderful way to promote where they live to our city cousins.  And let’s face it, the more people who choose to visit and move to each region, the stronger and more vibrant that region becomes.”

We encourage anyone to apply.  The ‘Why Gwydir Region’? competition operates for a two week period, and closes on Monday 14 October.  An iTunes voucher will be presented to the winning entry.
