30 photos put focus on region

THIRTY photographs that reflect the Gladstone region, community and environment, were unveiled at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum last night.

Winners of the Intercity Images photography competition were announced by Mayor Gail Sellers and Gladstone Saiki Sister City Advisory Committee president Wendy Marsh.

Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum cultural projects officer Di Paddick said there were more than 200 submissions in a fantastic show of support from the region’s photographers.

“The selected images will travel to Saiki City, Japan, to be displayed alongside images from their city’s photographers and then the combined display will return to Gladstone in August to be exhibited in conjunction with Gladstone’s Multicultural Festival on Sunday, August 7, at the Gladstone Marina.”

The exhibition of entries received will be on display at the gallery until May 21.

Intercity Images is a Gladstone Saiki Sister City Advisory Committee initiative supported by Queensland Alumina Limited and the Gladstone Regional Council.

The winning images were by: Ruth Crosson, Geraldine Liporada, Sharon Cohalan, Denise Reichenbach, Marina Hobbs, Lidia Godijn, Denise Wild, Jane Jacobsen, Jen Tybell, Brian Farber, Lyn Lee, Oki Rose, Graham McDonald, Mellissa Case, Russell Ferguson, Bryan Jordan, Alison Davenport, Penelope Leyden, Natalia Muszkat, Carolyn Young, Annabel Dunphy, Brenda Strong, Cedric Williams, Trisha Jacobsen, Sehjin Chowdhury, Peter Jacobsen, Fiona Hofstetter, Glenn Maycock, Kim Price and David Stalker.
