Lens Mist 2018

Lens Mist photography award and exhibition 2018

Lens Mist Photography Award and Exhibition 2018 invites artists to place the municipality of Kingston under the microscope and capture something they have never noticed before.  

Artists of all ages are encouraged to go on a journey of discovery, scouring local suburbs and unknown places, small and large, looking for a moment of inspiration illuminated and heightened by the camera. Book in for a Kingston Arts Lens Mist bus tour around sites of Kingston to find inspiration!

Artists are encouraged to think creatively, be original and demonstrate technique.

Twenty works will be shortlisted by a Curatorial Committee. Shortlisted images will be printed, framed and exhibited and will be eligible for one of three Awards. Members of the public who vote for People's Choice have a chance to win the Voter’s Award. Shortlisted artworks and prints are available for purchase by the public.
