Inaugural photo competition to showcase “Spirit of Mount Larcom”
Gladstone Regional Council is calling all shutterbugs to capture the beauty and spirit of Mount
Larcom for the Mount Larcom Rural Transaction Centre’s inaugural amateur photography
Launching Thursday, 1 August and closing 5pm, Friday 30 August 2019, Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett invited all community members to step behind the lens and get snapping.
“The Mount Larcom region is rich in history and surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, so community members have great scenery to work with,” Councillor Burnett said.
“Whether it is scenery, wildlife, a person or a group of people, Council is encouraging photographers to capture what the spirit of Mount Larcom means to them.”
Cr Burnett said photographs must be taken in Mount Larcom or the surrounding districts, which include: Aldoga, Ambrose, Bracewell, Darts Creek, East End, Machine Creek, Mount Larcom, Raglan, Targinnie and The Narrows.
The winning entry will be featured on Mount Larcom branded souvenirs and will be available for purchase from the Mount Larcom Post Office gift shop.
“When Council consulted with community members earlier this year, residents put forward the idea of Mount Larcom branded souvenirs, so the photography competition has been created to truly showcase what Mount Larcom means to them,” he said.
Entries will be displayed at the Mount Larcom RTC and members of the public are invited to cast their vote from Monday, 2 September until Monday, 30 September 2019.
The winning entry will be announced at the Mount Larcom RTC on Tuesday, 1 October 2019 at 10am.
Cr Burnett said the winner would receive a $150 gift card and one of each item produced with their winning image.
Entry forms are available at the Mount Larcom RTC, 47 Raglan Street, Mount Larcom, on Council’s website, or by phoning Council on 4970 0700.
