    The challenge is out to local photography enthusiasts to capture some stunning imagery of the region’s iconic animals and their habitats to win over $4,000 in prizes.

    The Big6 Nature Pix photography competition, presented by Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) in partnership with the Gladstone Observer, invites kids and adults alike to enter their best photo of the region’s spectacular natural environment. 

    The competition opens on Saturday 30 May and is the first initiative GPC’s Gladstone’s Big6 education and awareness program, which has been designed to improve community knowledge of animals such as dugongs, turtles and seabirds and their habitats in the Port Curtis bioregion.

    GPC Safety, Environment and Risk General Manager, John Sherriff hopes the competition will help to raise awareness about these important animals and ecosystems.

    "We are lucky to live in such a naturally beautiful part of the world, and many of us use the harbour and beaches for work or play, or both. It is important to be aware of the animals that are vital to sustaining our local ecosystem and the simple things that we can all do to look after them. We want to celebrate these species and what better way to do that than by photographing them in their natural environments," Mr Sherriff said. 

    Entries can be submitted online at www.gladstoneobserver.com.au/big6naturepix

    The competition closes at 5:00pm AEST on Sunday, 28th June 2015.​​
