Stunning images capturing Ipswich’s natural wonders have been named the winners of Ipswich City Council’s 2018 Enviroplan Photo Competition.
There were 1513 entries in the six categories, with this competition having the largest number of entries in the past three years.
For the first time Instagram was a method of entry into any category, and it accounted for 270 of the total entries.
The best images will be showcased in council’s free Enviroplan calendar. An exhibition will also be on display at the Queens Park Education Centre from September 22 to October 7.
The photo competition is part of the Ipswich Enviroplan program. Part of that program is to encourage greater appreciation of our local environment, and to inspire action to protect our natural areas.
