This competition is part of the 5th Annual Photographic Competition “Focus on Farms” organised by Gomaren & Doctors Creek Catchment Landcare Group Inc.

The entire competition will be launched on May 1st 2020.


Given the current schooling conditions, we decided to launch the School’s section now, to give ALL of you ( teachers, parents and students) a positive focus during the time when children will be at home.

Please remember that while adult supervision is encouraged the work must be that of the students.

Have fun, stay safe. Costa and the GDCC Landcare team (based in Goombungee) look forward to seeing your entries.

**See above for presentation layouts details

**Entries in this category may be supported by a short video (max. 1 minute) uploaded to
