HSC art student, Jemima Nugent recently won runner up in the 2023 Local Land Services Photography Competition. The theme, ‘The Magic of Wiradjuri Country’, celebrated the vibrant culture and awe-inspiring beauty of the Wiradjuri landscape. The many WWCC Secondary students exhibiting, skillfully captured the essence of Wiradjuri Country, showcasing a deep appreciation for the natural wonders and rich heritage of the region. As stated by art teacher, Amanda Martinez, “this competition and exhibition is an excellent platform for artists to showcase their talent in photo media and be a part of the art community in such an important way.”

This year, there were 81 entrants from 23 schools throughout the Riverina. The winning works, currently on display at the Wagga Wagga Library, will be touring around the region as part of the Local Land Services annual exhibition.
