It is time to get those cameras clicking this weekend, with only one week to go before the Rockhampton Regional Council Nature Photography Competition closes for another year.

Water and Environmental Sustainability Councillor Donna Kirkland said that going by the entries so far, there could be some real competition across a few of the categories.

“We are thrilled that each year, both budding and professional photographers alike, invest their time and talents into this competition,” Cr Kirkland said.

“Not only is it great exposure for our local photographers, as we have proudly included many of them in our corporate documents and promotional material, but it is also a wonderful way to showcase our Region.

“The competition closes next Friday 14 May and with this glorious weather at the moment, it is the perfect time get out there and get snapping.”

Category winners announced to celebrate World Environment Day 2021. Entry is free. Winners are awarded a $250 prize per category.
