Supporting a Better Environment Portfolio Spokesperson Councillor Donna Kirkland said there had been some stunning entries but that she knew there were more out there.

“Our judges are going to have a tough time this year and I want to thank everyone who has entered so far.

“However, I am sure there are even more gorgeous shots out there – especially with the show nature has been putting on for us recently - and we want to see them!

“I have noticed some tremendous shots floating around social media channels, so tag your friends with a link to the competition today!

“Remember whether you’re a budding photographer, a passionate nature enthusiast or simply have your camera phone at the ready, this competition is for anyone who lives in the Rockhampton Region.

“We have five different categories, including one for under 18s, and there are prizes in each one.

“It is vital that you follow all government and social distancing guidelines when you are out and about.”
