About the 2018 awards

The Lord Mayor’s Photographic Awards (LMPA) is an opportunity for you to become involved in Brisbane’s cultural life by capturing moments that reflect our expressive, enthusiastic and energetic city. 

In 2018, residents, students and emerging photographers have the opportunity to submit their original images of Brisbane’s unique characteristics, hidden gems and local features. 

Capture and share your favourite images of Brisbane in celebration of our lifestyle, people, and places for your chance to win great cash prizes.
