The Lord Mayor’s Photographic Awards is an annual photographic competition that is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Brisbane.

This year, we are asking you to submit images that celebrate where you live with the competition theme, Suburban Life. Capture and share images that showcase what’s great about your suburb, what’s unique about where you live and the everyday things about your community that make it special.

Maybe you have already captured some interesting photos of your neighbourhood in the past few months? You can submit photos taken since 1 September 2019. 

Submit your photos from 10am Wednesday 8 July until 4pm Wednesday 5 August 2020.


How to enter

Submit your online entry from 10am Wednesday 8 July until 4pm Wednesday 5 August 2020. Social media entrants should also share their photo on Instagram using hashtag #LMPA2020.
