Brisbane Photographic Awards
Lord Mayor's Photographic Awards are back for 2022, so photographers and would-be photographers of Brisbane - it's time to get out and about in our beautiful city and start snapping!
Entries are open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Brisbane and this year's theme, Spirit of Brisbane, asks photographers to capture the unique spaces, places and hidden gems that make our city great.
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said, “Brisbane is known for its magic moments, colourful characters and bustling city after dark. From seeing the sunrise from the Mt Coot-tha lookout or Kangaroo Point Cliffs, street performers in Queen Street Mall or the barista that makes your morning coffee, the spirit of Brisbane is unique to each of us,”
The photography awards encourage entries from hobby snappers to professional photographers with photos able to be uploaded via the entry form on Council’s website. There are multiple categories you can enter including Student, Green Heart and LaVonne Bobongie Award, a special category introduced in 2021 to recognise late artist LaVonne Bobongie’s contribution to Brisbane as an advocate of First Nations Country, community and identity.
“Brisbane has again shown this year that we are a resilient city, supported by a vibrant and strong community. Our annual photographic awards are a small way our residents, regardless of their photography skills, can celebrate the moments, places and people that make our city what it is and a great place to live,” said Cr Schrinner.
There are eight fantastic cash prizes to be won: Open category - $5,000; Open category first runner-up - $2,000; Open category second runner-up - $1,000; Green Heart category - $1,500; Student category - $1,500; Social Media category - $1,500; LaVonne Bobongie Award - $1,500; People's Choice Award - $1,500.
