It’s on again! The Sugar Snaps photo competition is seeking the best photographs from across the Australian sugarcane industry.

Farmers, millers, industry providers, and all stakeholders in the industry are being invited to take part in the 2020 Sugar Snaps photography competition, which will again showcase the beauty of the Australian sugarcane industry.

The winners of the competition will have the chance to win prizes and see their work published in a 2021 shed calendar.

The purpose of this competition is to highlight pictures that illustrate the hard work, beauty, landscape and the contribution of the Australian sugarcane industry.

Farmacist Regional Manager, Mr Jayson Dowie, said the competition attracted stunning images in its inaugural year last year, and he was keen to again see entries across all aspects of the sugar industry from people to harvesting to farming systems to transport and milling.

“Everyone has a smartphone in their pocket so we encourage you all to keep snapping pictures that celebrate our amazing industry,” Mr Dowie said. “Through this competition, we would love to see a range of pictures revealing the depth and breadth of the Australian cane industry and showcase them in a sugar industry calendar.”

SRA Executive Manager, Communications, Mr Brad Pfeffer, said the winning entries would be featured in the 2021 shed calendar and also be in the running for other prizes.

“The 2021 shed calendar will be produced as part of a series of Nutrient Management projects which are currently being delivered in the Burdekin, Mackay Whitsunday, the Herbert, and parts of Far North Queensland,” Mr Pfeffer said.

The Nutrient Management projects are delivered by Farmacist, Mackay Area Productivity Services, Herbert Cane Productivity Services Limited (HCPSL), SRA and TRAP Services and funded by the Queensland Government Reef Water Quality Program and Australian Government Reef Trust.
