Perth snappers called to capture a moment in time

Share the view from your corner of the State as Propel Youth Arts WA’s Mosaic Capture Day returns this Saturday.

Calling all happy snappers, Insta-stars and photographic creatives in WA! Whether you’re lazing on the grass in Kings Park, capturing breathtaking sights up Bluff Knoll, exploring the iconic Kimberleys or even taking in the serenity in your own backyard, share your perspective on WA.

The Mosaic Capture project sees people contributing a snapshot of their day over 24 hours on September 28, with more than 2,000 photos submitted by more than 1,400 people since it was first held in 2012.

All these snaps are then brought together and displayed in chronological order in a massive photo-mosaic as a public exhibition in the CBD from October 22 to November 24.

To take part: 

  • Register online here.
  • Capture your moment on the day by phone or camera and share it with the hashtags #mosaicprojectwa and #propelyouthartswa.
  • A link will be sent to you to upload your photo before October 6 or you can do it through Propel’s website here.
  • Then just head on down to the exhibition at Wesley Quarter in the CBD and see your snap alongside hundreds of others!

Stuck for ideas on what you’re going to snap? You can chat about the Perth photography scene with the professionals in a Creatives Picnic hosted by Propel in the Urban Orchard, opposite the Art Gallery of WA, on Saturday.

And if your furry friend is your favourite sight of the day (who could blame you?), Propel are partnering with WA animal rescue group Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE) to host an Animal ‘Furtography’ workshop on the day as well.

Learn to get the best angles on your canine companions and feline friends from WA-based animal photographer Caroline Furst with rescue doggos modelling on the day!

There’s no need for special photographic equipment to take part in the mosaic project, Propel General Manager Jamie McGleave said.

“We receive images from children as young as four and people as old as 94, amateurs and experienced photographers, and last year we received photo submissions from people across all nine regions of WA,” he said.

So grab your friends, head out and get snapping!
