Photography competition: Capturing your Bribie Island
This year Bribie Island Seaside Museum turned 10, and to celebrate we asked Queensland residents to share their photographed Bribie moments in the Capturing your Bribie Island photography competition.
We received many entries of special moments, treasured memories, and wildlife that call Bribie Island home.
Winners from each category were announced on our newsfeed. Congratulations to all winners, the images are truly amazing.
Now it’s time to vote for the People’s Choice Award. You can vote for your favourite photograph from the 10 highly commended images chosen by our judge Katie Bennett. The highly commended images showcase many sides of beautiful Bribie Island from sunsets, wildlife to the iconic beaches and structures.
Voting closes 5:00 PM Sunday 12 July 2020. The winner of the People’s Choice Award will have their photograph professionally printed to keep and will also be featured in Bribie: your stories, our stories exhibition in 2021.
12-18 years category
Gemma Johnson, Reflection of time
"The image of the sand bags and the war time shelter with a mirror in front of it reflecting a beautiful afternoon on Bribie in 2020. No people used in the photo due to Covid restrictions but definitely no war ships on the water shows just how lucky we are."
Black and white category
Stan Paczkowski, Fire on Bribie Island
"This photo was taken across Deception Bay showing the smoke from a fire on Bribie Island."
Juran Bourke, Buckley's Hole
"A hidden gem, great for fishing, bird watching or sun baking. I was in awe of the sand formations (can you see the unicorn?). One of my favourites, a lot of locals struggled to guess the destination and were amazed to learn it was taken at Buckley's Hole."
Historical image category (50 years or older)
Morris Weyer, My family photographed on Bongaree Beach
"This photo of my family was taken in the early 1950's. Our accommodation was in a double story fibro building . Just to the left of the tall boy in the back row that building appears. Of interest is the fact that the area just behind where this photo was taken is now where the Bribie Museum is situated . The buildings mentioned have only recently been demolished."

John Cupper, A Quick Stretch Then Lunch
"The Rainbow Bee Eater, who visit Bribie Island from October till January to breed. A pair nest just over our back fence on the firebreak every year, and the male seems happy to pose for me."
