HAVE you or can you take a photo of what's really important to you about living in Coffs Harbour?

As a part of its review of the Coffs Harbour 2030 Plan, Coffs Harbour City Council is asking locals what's important to them through a special photographic competition.

"I am really looking forward to seeing what people love about our region," Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight said.

"We want to see what inspires them, or maybe what attracted them here in the first place or why Coffs Harbour really feels like home.

"We live in such a beautiful part of the world that there's so much to choose from. It could be a wonderful view, a street or building, a special person or even a corner of your own back yard."

Judging will be carried out by the Mayor and Council's general manager Steve McGrath, who will assess how well the image evokes a picture of life in Coffs Harbour and its originality.

Prizes for the competition will be vouchers to the value of $400 (First), $250 (Second) and $100 (Third).  These can be spent at a local business of the recipient's choice, but cannot be used to purchase alcohol or cigarettes.

Photographs can be posted on Facebook at www.facebook.com/2030review or emailed to 2030Review@chcc.nsw.gov.au

Each photograph must be accompanied with text of 30 words or less describing the significance of the subject of the photograph.

Entrants may submit as many photographs as they choose but they must feature different subjects. Photographs must be of a place or subject in the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA).

Images must be less than 1MB for uploading to Facebook, plus have a high resolution version suitable for printing.
