Ipswich splendour comes alive
IPSWICH'S beauty will once again be captured as budding photographers work on their entries for the annual Ipswich Enviroplan Photographic Competition.
Entries to the competition, which offers a total prize pool of more than $5000, opened last Friday and continue until September 21..
Professional photographer and competition judge Michael Snedic said he would be looking for photos that were outside the box.
"I encourage people to get out there and spend time in the environment to get that perfect shot," he said.
"We're looking for a unique entry. It doesn't matter what kind of camera you use or what your skill level is."
Council's environment and conservation chair Heather Morrow said new categories had been added after the success of last year's competition.
"This competition just keeps getting bigger and better, with images that are not just surprising, revealing and breathtaking, but drawn from our own backyard," Cr Morrow said.
Entry forms are available from the Queens Park Environmental Education Centre, Visitor Information Centre, Ipswich council customer service centres, divisional offices, Ipswich Library branches and online. For more visit enviroplanphotocomp.com.au.
