The PPAQ Photography Awards is an opportunity for you to become involved in a distinctive cultural life that can only be offered by the wonderful state we live in. We invite you to share your vision with us.

In 2018, residents and students have the opportunity to submit their original images of Queensland’s unique character.

This Year’s Brief: “My Queensland”

Queensland is a State like no other: From harsh deserts to impenetrable rainforest; from crystal clear coral seas to soaring skyscrapers; from urban chic to country character. It’s a world of photographic opportunity at our door.

The PPAQ challenges you to show us something that truly represents our diversity. We’re less interested in seeing the Story Bridge at sunset, and more interested in seeing the way humans interact with the land or sea. Less your family pet, and more the struggles of nature to come to terms with our extreme climate. Less, your backyard, and more the way Queensland is seen by the rest of Australia and the world.

In fact, surprise us. It’s home to all of us, but what does it mean to you?
