Queensland photography competition

Well, it has been a long time between drinks, as they say. I haven't done many posts on this Blog due to a lot of personal changes. Recently, however, I received an e-mail about a Tourism Queensland promotion for their Where Else But Queensland web site. Basically, it is for an amateur photography competition, which offers the chance to win a $10,000 Queensland holiday. And of course, where better in the world could their be for a Holiday, and you'd have to make sure you came to Brisbane!

The competition is open to any Australians with a digital camera, a taste for photography and a personal photo from their Queensland travels. It runs through until September 2008. They are lookng to invite Australians, whether they are now based in Oz or abroad, to enter the competition and go in the draw to win $10,000 worth of Queensland holiday vouchers. Given my focus on Brisbane, they thought "I Love Brisbane" would be perfect for reaching others that are passionate about Queensland.

I must admit I was pretty stoked to get the e-mail, as even though I haven't been posting, this blog site still gets lots of visitors who drop in and see some of the great things Brisbane has to offer. I've taken so many photo's around Brisbane, that its been hard to pick a favourite, and you can all look back through previous posts to get a sense of the kinds of things I'm in to, be they local attractions and events, sculpture, heritage architecture, pubs or shopping. The Story Bridge photo I have in the banner is one I love, but I might submit this one from a post I did on Streets Beach. To me it represents so much about Brisbane that I love: A Beautiful Day; The Beach in the City; People Having Fun! Let me know what you think!
