Old meets new

HERITAGE PERTH is inviting budding historians aged 6-16 to enter its Capturing Change school holiday competition.

Perth has changed dramatically since the early days of the Swan River Colony in 1829, but there are still spots where new buildings sit alongside remnants of the past, be it natural heritage or historic buildings.

Capturing Change wants photographs of the past rubbing shoulders with the present in the City of Perth, and you can submit a 100-word creative interpretation of your submission using poetry, prose, song or a 30-second video.

• A lot has changed in Perth since colonial lawyer Alfred Stone took this photo of Perth jetty in 1861. For instance, we now have Krispy Kreme in Perth.

The competition closes at 5pm on the last day of the school holidays, January 30, and there’s two age categories: 6-10 and 11-16 year olds.

First prize is a $60 book voucher and a morning/afternoon tea prize at the Isle of Voyage at Elizabeth Quay, and second prize is a $40 book voucher.
