Photographers and artists wanted by arboretum group
The Crommelin Native Arboretum at Pearl Beach is seeking the help of photographers and artists to establish a new website and brochure.
Previously, the Pearl Beach Progress Association had hosted a webpage for the arboretum.
Arboretum secretary Ms Mary Knaggs and the management committee were inviting professional and amateur photographers to contribute their images of the arboretum or events held there, such as weddings or the opera.
"We would be grateful for permission to use images or artwork inspired by the Arboretum," she said.
"If anyone wants some inspiration, at the moment there's lots of wallabies and lyrebirds to be seen early and late in the day.
"We are very lucky to have local volunteer professional media consultants, Pip White and Whitney Edwards, working on our new website and brochure.
"If you send a contribution, the images should be at high resolution - at least one, and preferably more than two, megabytes.
"We need the name of the photographer to be acknowledged if the image is used, or the artist's name if you send an image of an artwork.
"A statement is needed giving permission to the Crommelin Native Arboretum to use the image on its website or in other publications free of charge.
"Even though your images might not necessarily be used for the website or brochure immediately, we would be grateful to retain them in our archives for future publications," Ms Knaggs said.
The arboretum in Crystal Ave, Pearl Beach, covers a 5.5ha area of native bushland, open to the public, with established pathways and parking for a small number of cars.
Those who would like to contribute can email images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
