This year’s exhibition will be opening on Friday 3rd August at the Quilpie Visitor Information Centre and running through to Friday 14th September.

Each category is open to both children and adults. Winners will be judged by ‘people’s choice’ throughout the exhibition with a ballot box in the gallery for visitors to cast their votes. The voting will take place for the duration of the exhibition and winners will be announced once the exhibition closes. The winner for each category will receive a small prize. Categories are:

1. My mama said they were magic shoes. They could take me anywhere.

This category is a chance for everyone to share their awesome holiday snaps from anywhere in the world! From Birdsville to Burleigh, Thredbo to the Tropics or anywhere in between!

2. From that day on, if I was going somewhere, I was RUNNIN!

Here we want to see your best shots of Quilpie Shire Sporting events. Football, cricket, races, darts, marbles and more……..there is plenty of opportunities to capture some awesome shots for this category with Quilpie being the sporty little town it is.

3. Stupid is as stupid does

Show us the funniest and silliest photos you’ve got! The sillier the better…….make us laugh!!

4. We were like peas & carrots

Here we want to see photos of your best mates…..and by that we mean your PETS! Weather they be furry feathered, scaly or woolly we want to see them all! Yep that’s right….its the ever popular ‘pets’ category.

5. That’s all I have to say about that!

This category is for those stunning landscape and scenery photos you’ve managed to capture. Whether is be a sunset atop Baldy Top or a sunrise over the ocean, here is where you can let your photography skills shine!

6. My mama always said life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.
