Candid Ballarat – ABC Competition

ABC invited their listeners to snap candid, un-staged and un-scripted moments of Ballarat.

The Linda McCartney: Retrospective is the headline exhibition of the 2021 Ballarat International Foto Biennale. For the first time in Australia, this exhibition will present an exclusive look back at the career of the world-famous photographer Linda McCartney (1941-1998). Featuring more than 200 photographs taken of the “fab four“ during the height of their fame.  Other subjects include music icons Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, along with various 60’s pop culture scenes and a series of prints from the McCartney’s time to Australia between 1975 and 1993 which have never been shown before.

Just as Linda McCartney’s best images of The Beatles were un-staged, spontaneous moments, ABC Ballarat invited listeners to help peak behind the scenes of Ballarat to find the magic moments they might have missed otherwise.

We are pleased to present the five winners of this competition here, showcasing candid moments throughout Ballarat and beyond. View more about the competition here.
