Snapshot is an annual, open photographic competition for teenagers produced and presented by Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.

Entry is free and there is prizemoney on offer allowing teenagers the chance to become cultural producers, rather than just consumers.

This is the sixth year the Gallery has presented Snapshot.

Last year it was inundated with 450 photographs from around the world, the largest participation in its five-year history, which included international representation for the first time.

The exhibition will be on show from September 22 to December 2.

Footy as art

Don’t miss In League, a suite of four rugby league-themed exhibitions that, when viewed together, make tangible some of the less discussed aspects of winning, losing and representing team, suburb, state, nation, family and culture.

The exhibitions are Heads Up, Body On The Line, Team Player and Winna.

A gallery spokesman said Heads Up and Body On The Line, with their non-standard and contrasting approaches to sport portraiture, are examples of contemporary visual art projects driven by collaborations whereby cultural institutions and artists create works not usually associated with art.

Details: Penrith Regional Gallery and Lewers Bequest, Emu Plains, until September 16.
