Time is running out to enter national photographic comp

Sep 25, 2023

There are less than two weeks before entries close in the Your Health Link National Photographic Competition.

Run by the Mid North Coast Local Health District’s Your Health Link initiative, the competition encourages community members to capture an image that creatively illustrates the theme, ‘Healthy Life, Healthy You,’ while demonstrating an understanding of how healthy lifestyles apply to their lives.

Now in its sixth year, the prestigious competition offers prizes across multiple categories that suit photographers of all ages.

Prizes include a Nikon Z 50 camera kit, iPhone 14 Pro Max, GoPro HERO11, and an Apple iPad 10th Generation

The Healthy Kids Association sponsors subcategories in the school-aged competition, and children can base their photograph on a quick and healthy family recipe.

Winners of the school-age categories earn prizes for their school to support healthy canteen programs.

The competition closes on Sunday, 8 October. Find entry details at

Winners will be announced at an exhibition of the finalists at Sails Resort in Port Macquarie on Thursday, 23 November.
