Photo Competition

Brisbane in Focus 2023

The annual BLH Photo Competition invites everyone to discover the heritage of our great city and enter a photo taken at one of our 90+ member organisations during 2023. This year, the competition opens on the 1st of December, and closes on 21 January, 2024.

Photos must be from member sites/organisations, and taken in 2023 up to the closing date for the competition.

New for 2023 is the introduction of the Whippersnapper Award, for a junior photographer under the age of 18, who has taken a photo from either the Place or Object categories. Perfectly timed to coincide with the school holidays!
