Share Brisbane's beautiful environment with the world
Looking for a creative, healthy, outdoor project for your teenage children or students? Fantastic prizes are on offer from Brisbane's Lord Mayor to encourage young people to combine their creative photography talents with their love of technology.



The Green Heart Schools' Lord Mayor's Young Environmental Photographer of the Year competition challenges school students to capture a creative, inspiring and emotive image of Brisbane's beautiful environment. Entries are to be uploaded on Facebook, and nominated for one of five categories:

General category A clean and green Brisbane
Special category 1 Protecting our biodiversity and habitats
Special category 2 Healthy rivers and clean waterways
Special category 3 Rethinking waste
Special category 4 Young people caring for our environment.

Entries will be judged on their ability to capture the 'Inspiring a clean and green Brisbane' theme.



This is a great opportunity for the young photographers to have their talents recognised through public exposure on Facebook, with finalists being exhibited around Brisbane, starting at the Queensland Museum in April.

Hello, Cocky!


School students aged 13 and over are encouraged to apply, but they will have to hurry. This exciting competition closes on March 2. Prizes include photographic equipment, photography workshops and a schools prize for the school with most entries, not a bad deal as there is no entry fee.
