The Channel Country Photography Competition

Closes 31 August 2011

Vast Arts Inc, in collaboration with Desert Channels Group is excited to announce the launch of the Channel Country Photography Competition.

With over $8000 worth of prizes, and sections for varying skill levels, the Channel Country Photography Competition promises to attract a strong field of entries from all over the country.

Vast Arts is an Australian independent non-profit arts service organisation, and aims to promote the development of the arts as an integral part of the lives and industry of Western Queensland communities, bringing educational opportunities, cultural enrichment and economic benefits to the entire region.

Desert Channels Queensland, along with 56 regional bodies Australia-wide, was founded on a Commonwealth initiative that established community groups to deliver natural resource management (NRM) regionally.

Photographers are asked to submit photos that were taken within the Queensland catchment areas of the Diamantina, Georgina, Barcoo and Thomson Rivers and the Cooper Creek within the last twelve months (map available).

Entry photographs will be shown as a multi-media slide show projection on the Channel Country Photography Competition gala evening on 1 October, 2011 at the Qantas Founders Museum.

A 2012 calendar of the winners will be printed and available for purchase in November 2011.
