Spring in the Hills Competition and Exhibition was started in 2008 by GEM Camera Club Inc., to enable amateur photographers, within the community, to enter a photographic competition. This is still the aim today.

Over the years, the competition has evolved and in 2016 Nikon Australia provided their support and the name changed to I AM Spring in the Hills.

The categories for the competition have developed to cover a spectrum of genres in photography, and to provide Junior photographers (under 16 years of age) and ability to be involved and showcase their photographic abilities.  

There are two parts to the competition: the first part is digital, the second is printed images that are then displayed in the exhibition. 

The winning entries will be announced at an official presentation. The prize pool is substantial and previous winners have enjoyed their prizes.

The exhibition is shown in the Gallery at Zig Zag Cultural Centrein Kalamunda, which is a fabulous facility. The Gallery is at 50 Railway Road, Kalamunda and is well worth a visit.

The exhibition provides the opportunity for sale of image/s as per each individuals preference.
