Digital Photography Course & Competition

  • The CWU runs a Digital Photo Competition for members who have completed our digital photography course on Unionlink. Now that the days are getting longer, it is an ideal time to learn a new skill. So why not take the plunge and try out our new Digital Photography course and enter our competition?

    The competition is for amateur photographers and there are many themes to choose from; perhaps something inspiring from nature, some beautiful scenery, something abstract, or any type of photo that tells a story. The choice is yours!

    First prize is a digital camera

    There will also be a number of runner up prizes!

    A selection of photos will be posted to the Unionlink Digital Photography course and you may enter up to three (3) photos in the competition.

    Winners will have their photograph, name and Branch published on the CWU website, in Connect, at CWU Biennial Conference and in the Unionlink Digital Photography course forum.
