In a world where negative stories often prevail and positive outcomes get lost in our newsfeeds, Centacare and Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre want to celebrate those who have overcome obstacles and recognise the women, men and children who have rebuilt their lives.

Fraser Coast residents are urged to submit photographs that tell positive, local stories –  stories of resilience, strength and unity in our towns.

The exhibition will open at 10am on 25 June, 2021 at Stockland Hervey Bay Food Court and the public will be able to vote for their favourite photo and story.

A range of activities will also be on offer for people to enjoy.

These include:

  • Making dream catchers
  • Creating positive postcards
  • Rock painting
  • Positive message wall

Competition entry is free and open to Fraser Coast residents of all ages.

Entries can be dropped off at Stockland Shopping Centre (in the food court area) on the 23rd and 24th of June between 10am and 2pm.

GALLERY: You know, Torquay Beach on just another Tuesday

There will be three prizes, decided by a panel of judges and awarded on the 10th of July once community choice voting is complete.

Prizes will be in the form of Fraser Coast Gift Cards to the value of $500, $250 and $100.

The competition is open to professional photographers, amateurs and enthusiasts, community groups and organisations.
