Youth to focus on water appreciation through the lens

Water week photography competition 2019 web tn

Capturing the conservation around Isaac’s precious commodity is the catalyst for a photography competition focused on the region’s grassroots.

The Isaac Regional Council 2019 Water Week Photography Competition is now open to young people aged between 5 and 18 to snap how they see water through their own creative vision.

Mayor Anne Baker said this is great opportunity for Isaac’s youth to be part of the picture when it comes to water conversation and protection.

“This is how we harness the pure power of water knowledge and appreciation – we need to have a look at our communities and how water affects all parts of our everyday life,” Mayor Baker said.

 “Young people are encouraged to use their camera or mobile phone to capture water in the natural environment sense, how it’s conserved and how it relates to our health.”

“I would strongly encourage all our schools to think about how our children can frame the wonder of our stunning region through the lens.”

“From the coast to the coalfields, the Isaac is home to a dynamic and beautiful landscape with the St Lawrence Wetlands to the east and Theresa Creek Dam to the west.”

Submissions are now open and close Sunday, 20 October 2019.

Entrants have a chance to win a season pass to a local Isaac swimming pool of their choice.

All entries will be posted on Council’s official Facebook page from Monday, 21 October until Sunday, 27 October where the photo with the most likes, comments or shares from each age category will be announced the winner on Monday, 28 October.

Submit entries online at www.isaac.qld.gov.au/water-week-photography-competition and additional terms and conditions apply.

Call Council’s Customer Service Centre available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 1300 ISAACS (1300 472 227) for more information.
