Help us unearth Logan’s Hidden Gems
The local community is invited to share their Logan Hidden Gems.

Local residents and visitors, as well as avid photographers, are being encouraged to unearth the hidden gems that make Logan City a unique place in which to live and play.

Logan City’s Hidden Gems online photo competition gives residents and visitors the chance to showcase the best parts of the city, whether it’s their favourite coffee shop, a hideaway picnic spot, a hub for adventure or somewhere quiet to unwind.

Logan City Mayor Pam Parker said the competition was designed to expose Logan City’s best kept secrets.

“We’re asking the community to take a photo of their favourite place or activity within Logan City and to share that photo online for everyone else to see,” she said.

“Our residents know Logan better than anyone so we’re asking them to show the rest of the world what makes it so great.

“We also want our visitors to show us what they love most about our city.”

Photos of a Logan Hidden Gem can be posted on Instagram or Twitter using the #loganhiddengems hashtag or submitted online through the Visit Logan website.

A prize pool of more than $5,000 is up for grabs including a Canon digital SLR camera, GoPro camera and Cable Ski Logan party for 10 people, five-hour Angel Eyes photo booth hire and a two-week exhibition in the Logan Art Gallery with an exclusive launch event. The People’s Choice Award winner will receive $1,000 in a Bendigo Bank account.

The images will be judged across four categories – action and adventure, nature and wildlife, arts and culture and people and places. Entrants can choose their category by adding the appropriate hashtag.

The judging panel will include Cr Parker and Logan City Council Libraries and Cultural Services Manager Annette Turner as well as former Logan locals Wesley Enoch, Queensland Theatre Company Artistic Director, and Alan Hill, Griffith University Associate Lecturer of Photography.

Entries will be published online at visitlogan.com.au where the general public can also cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Entries are now open and close at 5pm on 11 April. Voting for the People’s Choice Award opens on 16 April and closes on 23 April.

Winners will also appear in the June edition of the Our Logan magazine.
