“This year over 1700 entries were submitted with our talented photographers capturing the people and places of our city in incredible ways,” said Cr Schrinner.

“This year’s theme was the unique spaces, places and hidden gems that make our city great through the lens of the spirit of Brisbane.

“It’s been incredibly inspiring to see how this year’s themes have been interpreted with the different categories providing opportunities for amateur and student photographers all the way to professionals.
