Lord Mayor encourages students to capture Brisbane’s natural beauty

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is calling on budding student photographers to capture photographs of the city’s natural beauty.

The Lord Mayor’s Young Environmental Photographer of the Year competition will be open to eligible school students aged 13 years and over, who submit their entry between 10 February and 2 March, 2014.

“I encourage school students to get snap-happy around Brisbane and submit photographs that inspire us all to value and protect our clean and green city,” Cr Quirk said.

“This could be anything from the trees in your local park, the compost garden in your backyard or the wildlife you see along a bushwalk.

“There’s plenty of inspiration to be found and the challenge is to capture something creative, emotive and representative of our city’s natural wonders.”

Photos can be entered within five categories including: a clean and green Brisbane, protecting our biodiversity and habitats, healthy rivers and clean waterways, rethinking waste and young people caring for our environment.

Cr Quirk said residents could vote for their favourite images through Council’s Young People Facebook page.

“I have no doubts this competition will yield a wealth of creative pieces from the city’s students who demonstrate a great attitude and willingness to thinking green,” he said.

In the final round a panel of judges will choose an overall winner, first place runner-up and then a winner from each category.

Finalists will be exhibited at Collector’s Café in the Queensland Museum with the winners to be announced in early April.

To submit an entry visit Council’s Young People Facebook page at Facebook.com/YoungPeopleBrisbane.
