Don't Waste Hinchinbrook Photo Competition

As part of the ongoing Don’t Waste Hinchinbrook campaign, Council and MAMS Group invited residents to submit photographs that captured the beauty of the Hinchinbrook Shire.

Council received a large number of entries. Short listing commenced and ten photos which best depicted the theme were put forward for public voting on Monday 1 November 2021.

From the ten finalists, two fantastic photos were chosen via a public vote with the winning image/s to be displayed across the body of the new local kerbside collection vehicle.

The top two images were ‘Garbutt Park’ taken by Rachael Hundt, and “In the water, Forrest Beach” taken by Lisa Scobie.

Council congratulates Rachael Hundt and Lisa Scobie on winning the Don’t Waste Hinchinbrook Photo Competition and thanks those who participated and submitted an entry into the Photo Competition.

Council believes the two images chosen, showing the Rain Trees in Garbutt Park, and the crystal clear water of Forrest Beach perfectly represent the range of amazing landscapes on offer in our Shire.

Keep an eye out for the newly wrapped local kerbside collection vehicle in the future.

The Don’t Waste Hinchinbrook Photo Competition is a joint initiative between Council and MAMS Group.
