CheckUP is looking for photos that capture the unique landscapes, communities, and people of Queensland and the Northern Territory! By submitting photos to CheckUP’s 2023 Photo Competition, amateur and professional photographers have the chance to win prizes and have their images featured in our annual IMPACT magazine.

We are looking for photos that capture the theme 'Creating healthier communities'. This is your chance to share your creative perspective of the communities you work or live in.

The categories for 2023 are 'Natural environment' and 'Human interest'. Each of these category winners will receive a $100 Visa gift card and a Bluetooth Camera Selfie Stick and Tripod valued at $59.99.

Entries to both the above categories will be automatically entered into a People's Choice category with voting to occur via Facebook. A prize will be awarded to the People's Choice winner.

To enter the competition, please complete this form and click the 'Submit' button below before 5pm on Friday 9 June 2023 AEST. Note: The entrant must be the photographer.

Please see the full terms and conditions below.

Hint from the judges:
We love images showcasing life in rural and remote communities and those that reflect people living healthy lifestyles! Remember, you can submit both portrait and landscape images.

Photo acknowledgment: Pictured at the top of this form is an image taken by Paul Penumala, who was the 2022 winner of the natural environment category. The photo showcases the coastal view from Parrearra at sunset
