Newsletter for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia  Volume 9, Issue 131; March 2006     

Artists and Photographers, showcase your work in our Offshore Anthology

Calling for contributions NOW

We have just closed off written contributions for our Writers Anthology and have begun choosing material and editing. We have received almost 40,000 words of material from local writers so thanks to all for your generous time and contributions.
We are now offering all artists and photographers the chance to showcase their work to support the written stories and poems and are looking to select photography and/or artwork from local artists/photographers .  The visual material I have seen so far is beautiful!
If interested, please contact me this month on 9979 2411 and or/e-mail me scotisle@tpg.com.au your thumbnail examples of your work for consideration. We are after scenic works that capture the essence of offshore life. We would prefer the pictures do not highlight or identify specific people.
Art that reflects our  local lifestyle or captures the feel of Pittwater is very welcome. Anything to do with boats, local animals, wharfs, the local environment, local events , local flora etc would be of interest.
Colour or black and white is fine.
