  • Thursday 21 July 2016

Photographers who love capturing creative, inspiring and emotive images of the Sunshine Coast’s beautiful environment have just over one week left to enter the 2016 Sunshine Coast Environment Photography Awards.

The 2016 Awards – offering three prizes with a total value of $8500 – are an exciting opportunity for local photographers to use their skills and passion to share the story of the Coast’s natural and built landscapes.

Council aims for the 2016 Awards to build on the success of last year’s Sunshine Coast Landscape and Wildlife Photography Award that showcased the region’s unique environment and lifestyle.

Entry is free for residents of the Sunshine Coast Local Government Area and just $25 per person for people living outside the region.

Entrants under 18 years of age must have the consent of their parent or guardian to enter. Images must be captured within the Sunshine Coast Council local government area.
