Federal Member for Wide Bay, Llew O’Brien today announced the winners of his Wide Bay in Pictures competition.
“I was really impressed by the quality of the entries that were submitted by school students from all over the Wide Bay electorate,” Mr O’Brien said.

“It made the task of selecting just two pictures each from students from the Noosa Council; Fraser Coast Regional Council; Gympie Regional Council; and South Burnett Regional Council and Cherbourg Aboriginal Council (combined) very difficult.

“Students captured the diversity of Wide Bay in their scores of photographic and artistic entries, with images depicting coastal sunsets, heritage buildings, scenic hinterland, and productive agriculture, as well as some very creative works.

“Wide Bay is a great place to live and work and it is very encouraging to see the pride that young people take in highlighting the parts of our region that are special to them.

“I am pleased to announce that the following entries have been selected to be reproduced on canvas and will be hung in my Parliament House office.

  • Lan Geromet,Tewantin State School, Noosa Council
  • Thys Benade, Noosa Christian College, Noosa Council
  • Fayanne Gibson, Murgon High School, South Burnett Regional Council
  • Lewis Hopkins, Cherbourg State School, Cherbourg Aboriginal Council
  • James Anderson, Tinana State School, Fraser Coast Regional Council
  • Kaitlin Francis, Maryborough High School, Fraser Coast Regional Council
  • Ellouisa Smith, Victory College, Gympie Regional Council
  • Skye Hanson, Kilkivan State School, Gympie Regional Council

“The students’ pictures will be a focal point in my Parliament House office, and become a conversation piece about Wide Bay’s beauty, to encourage people to come to our electorate to experience all Wide Bay has to offer.

“Every student who entered the competition will receive a special Certificate of Appreciation, and the winning schools P&C committee will receive a $200 donation.

“I thank the schools for encouraging their students to enter the Wide Bay in Pictures competition, and I especially thank the students for their wonderful contributions.”
