I love a bike city because...

We're celebrating Youth Week 2021 with I love a bike city because....

This project invites young people to capture what they love about bike riding in Wollongong in an image, and submit it to be part of a public exhibition.

Works will be exhibited in an outdoor exhibition space to celebrate the skills and talent of young people in our community.

Twenty images will be exhibited on panels on the exterior walls of Wollongong Youth Centre. Others will be displayed in the exhibition space inside the building.

To be considered for the exhibition you must be a young person between the ages of 12-24 years in the Wollongong Local Government Area.

Your final submission must be your own work in the format of a digital image. It must meet the specifications explained in the 'What are the file requirements?' section of this page..

To take part in this program you will need to submit a digital file that meets the following minimum requirements:

  • Portrait (or tall) orientation
  • Pixels: 1000 pixels wide x 3000 pixels high
  • Format: JPEG

Ideally, make your image the highest quality resolution possible.  The image will be printed on panels that are either 600mm wide x 1800mm high, and/or 400mm wide x 1200mm high at 72 dpi.
