Upcoming Exhibition

Festive Frames

Maitland City Council is inviting residents to submit a photograph that shows how you celebrate around Christmas time.  

All photos submitted have the chance to have their photo shown in the ‘Walls that Talk’ exhibition on the façade of Maitland City Library, and to win a $50 voucher.  

Photos could be a cherished tradition, your family lunch, festive decorations, your grandmother’s famous holiday dish, a moment of gift giving, time spent on Country, or the unique ways that reflect how you celebrate this time of year. 

Competition closes: 11.59pm, Sunday 15 October 2023
