I am writing to you so that you may inform your members of a national photography competition they may be interested in. The National Digital Portrait Exhibition 2019 is a photography competition circuit with five judging panels. This means your entries go into five separate competitions for the one entry fee of $34. This competition is now open for entries and closes on March 31st.
The exhibition is conducted in accordance with the recommendations and approval of the Australian Photographic Society (APS) – Approval number 2019/9, with 60 APS medals, ribbons and recognition towards honours available to entrants. This competition is informally titled “Portraits for Parkinson’s”, as 25% of your entry fee will be donated to aid Parkinson’s Disease support groups in your state.
