Big 6 Nature Pix
We are very pleased to announce the winners of the Big 6 Nature Pix photo competition. A total of 132 entries were received throughout June, with the photographs judged by a panel including representatives from Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC), the Observer and Jo Duke, Curator, Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum.
Stunning scenes, breathtaking sunsets, turtles, birds, crabs and coral have been captured by some very talented photographers. Judging was tough, but the panel agreed on four photographs, plus a highly commended image; that are not only visuall stunning but also demonstrate a strong link with Gladstone's Big 6.
The winning entries not only won some great prizes, but will also have their photographs featured on GPC's Marina Billboards later this year. Congratulations to all of the winners, and thanks to everyone who got involved in capturing the natural beauty of our region and Gladstone's Big 6!
The winners are:
Senior category winner: Shane Weatherall
Senior category runner up: Claire Dent
Junior category winner: Hayden Walters
Junior category runner up: Tyler Power
Highly commended: Holly Lambert
