Sharing is Caring

Sharing images these days is common practice; Instagram, Facebook, Flickr… the list goes on.  Before most of these were used as common practice there was always Intercity Images: Gladstone Saiki Photographic Exchange.   This much anticipated annual exhibition is currently calling for entries again from photographers of the Gladstone Region to capture the spirit of Central Queensland’s lifestyle, people and environment.

Thanks to the initiatives of the Gladstone Saiki Sister City Advisory Committee and the support of Gladstone Regional Council, the competition is open to photographers of all ages with varying degrees of skill- amateur to professional- everyone is welcome to enter up to two images each.

Gallery & Museum Curator, Jo Duke said, "This is my first Intercity Images experience in the Region and so I am really looking forward to seeing everybody's photos.  The previous years have been well received by the community with many people entering annually.  We hope that everyone will get on board again for 2014 and help contribute to this vibrant and unique exhibition."

Entry forms with terms and conditions are out now and are available to download from the Gallery & Museum website  Hard copies can be collected from most Gladstone Regional Council venues.  All images submitted will go on display as part of the exhibition and a panel of judges will select thirty which will be sent to our region’s sister city, Saiki City, Japan.  Start gathering together your entries now as the final day for submissions is 5pm, Tuesday 1 April 2014.

The exhibition will be on display from 5-26 April at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum, with the official launch, announcement of selected images and presentation of certificates happening 5:30pm, Friday 11 April.  The thirty selected images will be posted to Japan for display there during the month of June before heading back to Gladstone along with a selection of Images from local Saiki City photographers.  Those images will then combine to create a second exhibition which is part of the Multicultural Festival scheduled for July/August 2014.

The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum is located on the corner of Goondoon & Bramston Streets, Gladstone.  It is open 10am-5pm, Monday to Saturday with FREE admission.  The Gallery & Museum will be closed Good Friday, but open for Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday as well as ANZAC Day.
