2019 Photography Competition
This competition aims to foster relationships between younger and older generations by creating and capturing special moments together.
Photos serve so many purposes, from charting the growth of a child – to reminding us of a key moment in our lives. We want to make a star of your grandparents, grand-friends and kin carers and thank them for the amazing contributions they make to our lives and communities across the state.
The theme this year was 'connecting generations'. Thank you to all who entered.
Thank you to Canon Australia for their generous donation of prizes.
Congratulations to Natarsha Camilleri and Rebecca Hilton Brown for winning the 2019 NSW Grandparents Day Photography Competition! See their winning entries below!
Schools Category winner: Natarsha Camilleri
Caption: Our lives are like books, with each year as a different chapter. A switch in generations is implied from a young boy offering an e book and his grandmother a printed novel. This aims to show the telling of life experiences and illustrates the strength of this relationship.
Open category winner: Rebecca Hilton Brown
Title: Daisy and her Great Grand Poppy
Caption: Daisy (7months) with her Poppa (93). She nuzzled in as he kissed her bald head, whispering stories about the Nan she missed meeting, who would have also adored her. My Mum, Nan and I had been an inseparable trio and Poppa ensured that Daisy knew the love of his life.
