Moranbah Through Your Lens Photography Exhibition

The Moranbah Through Your Lens Photography Exhibition, which featured local photography artists of the Moranbah community, was held in the Isaac Regional Council’s Coalface Art Gallery, during the month of November.

The collection showcased in the Coalface’s Art Gallery consisted of photographs of the community’s residents, beautiful landscape, gorgeous vegetation, prominent structures, remarkable landmarks and local events captured in action.

Over the years, Moranbah and District Support Services and the Connecting Communities Program have supported local resident artists in their range of mediums and the programs that they have created for our community.  Our mission is to represent the interests of all residents, promote the liveability within Moranbah, and promote support for the community.

To showcase local photography artists, the Moranbah Through Your Lens Photography Competition was created to engage all new residents and existing community members to take photographs of the community through their lens of cameras, tablets, drones or phones.  This event gave the community of Moranbah an opportunity to connect with others, become active, establish a sense of connection in the community, while showcasing the beauty and unique qualities of our community.

On 24 November 2016, the winners of the Moranbah Through Your Lens Photography Competition were announced.  Open Category Winners were: Clayton Eadie, Shaun Huntley, Trysett La Garde and Kristy Iron.  Youth Category Winners were: Sarah Earl and Josie Martin. 

After the announcement of winners, all the prints were auctioned off with all proceeds supporting community programs and events.

Moranbah and District Support Services and the Connecting Communities Program would like to acknowledge Moranbah Arts, Community Radio 4RFM and the Isaac Regional Council and thank our major sponsors BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and the Moranbah Fairfor their generous contributions in making this exhibition a reality.
