What does giving and/or kindness look like through your lens?

Queensland Gives Photo Challenge is the perfect way for photographers, instagrammers, community groups and non-profit organisations to tell their stories and share their work.

The goal is to capture an act of giving, kindness, doing good or to highlight a specific cause or issue affecting Queenslanders.

The winning entry will receive a $2,000 donation for the charity of their choice and a $500 prize for the photographer!

The Queensland Gives Photo Challenge is proudly supported by our The Public Trustee to promote philanthropy and giving in our community. Entries can be realistic or conceptual, specific or broad.

Entries open Thursday 1 February 2024 and close Thursday 29 February 2024 at midnight.

Entry is simple; take a photo and submit your entry here. Multiple entries will be accepted. The photo challenge is open to professional and amateur photographers.

If you are on social media we’d love you to post it on Instagram or Facebook, tagging @QueenslandGives and using the Queensland Gives Photo Challenge hashtag #2024photochallenge to share the love!

The winning entry will be announced at the Queensland Philanthropy Week Launch at Parliament House on Monday 3 June 2024.
