The theme for the Boroondara Photo Competition in 2022 is Diverse Boroondara.

We recently called for photo submissions – present or past – that highlight the diversity and heritage of the spaces, places, and people in our community.

All finalists will be included in an exhibition, Diverse Boroondara, at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.

Submissions are now closed
