Catching magic moments that portray life on one day in regional Australia will be the goal of hundreds of photographers in a major project taking place on Friday 1 June.
Third year photography students from Charles Sturt University will stage 24HRs, an event that will chronicle a day in the life of Albury-Wodonga, providing a snapshot of its people and places.
High school students from 11 Border high schools will join members of the Wodonga Albury Photography Club, commercial photographers, staff photographers from the Border Mail, past graduates and current staff and students from CSU's photography course and interested individuals in the event.
"24HRs will provide photographers of all ages with opportunities to produce images set in various settings and view points - from images of sporting prowess and rural views to portraits of living in regional Australia," said project coordinator and CSU photography lecturer Karen Donnelly.
Local Albury-Wodonga government organisations and businesses are supporting the project. Awards totalling $1 500 from Albury City Council, Wodonga City Council and CSU will be offered for the best images in three categories - secondary schools, tertiary students and an Open section.
The top photos to be published in a special Border Mail supplement and on the Internet, while Albury business Fotosupplies is also assisting with photographers' requirements.
24HRs starts at 12noon on Friday 1 June and continues to 12noon the following day.
