Local Comp - Cash Prizes

Postby SteveGriffin on Wed Jun 29, 2005 11:41 pm

Not sure how many of you have spotted this one on ourbrisbane.com

Neighbourhood Planning Photo competition

What do you love about your neighbourhood now and into the future?

Answer this question with a photo and a few words in the latest competition by Brisbane City Council. Your images could depict what you love about your neighbourhood, what makes it special or how you would like it to look and feel in the future.

Other ideas may include what makes your neighbourhood a friendly place or images of the places and things you value.

If you enter the competition you will need to write 30-40 words about the photo you have submitted and what it represents.

Photos will be judged on two criteria - photographic merit, and creative insight into the meaning of your neighbourhood through words and image

Prizes are:
1st prize: $1500 cash
2nd prize: Canon Ixus 700 digital camera valued at $800
3rd prize: Sandisk Extreme iii 1 GB secure digital memory card valued at $280
Prizes can be redeemed for cash.

This competition is an innovative way for the people of Brisbane to get involved in the Neighbourhood Planning consultation process. Using their creativity, residents can express their vision of Brisbane’s unique neighbourhoods and contribute to the debate on how and where Brisbane will grow.

Don't mean to skite but I ended up in fourth place which I am pretty chuffed about :D :D

Missed out on a prize but still happy with the result.

Skyscape was my entry.

Thanks Simon.

The organiser did say my shot would be used, with my permission, on a poster advertising the event. They are going to send me a couple of copies so that should be good. :D

Congratulations on your placing -

I heard about this at the BCG digital night where it was announced that regular attendee Mel Brackstone had won first place. She had a copy of the big poster with all the images on - fantastic!
