Last year Victoria University held its sixth annual Picturing Footscray competition – a free open-entry photography prize with a focus on Footscray.
Photographers of all capabilities were invited to capture Footscray’s vibrant community spirit and 115 participants submitted incredible images showcasing everything from Footscray’s impeccable food culture to iconic local characters to moments of connection through lockdowns.
To celebrate, Victoria University in the Community has brought a selection of entries to the streets of Footscray. The Picturing Footscray street exhibition is sprawled across 54 poster spaces on the corner of Albert and Paisley Streets and features 2021’s best entries including the winning images.
The exhibition is on until 12 February 2022 – come along to see how last year’s entrants captured Footscray’s heart and soul and unique sense of community through photos.
