    Beware of Sunshine Coast Competition

    Sunshine Coast Council has just launched a fairly appalling competition - with no specific prizes other than shopping vouchers (no specified value) in an effort to illustrate their "Zooming into 2030 plan"

    I've just written a letter to the Mayor raising objections to the "competition"

    I would raise a huge red flag for this one and urge any entrant to carefully read the terms and conditions prior to entering.

    Thanks for the info.

    I had a look at the competition.

    I see they now have the prizes up.

    There are three categories:

    13 years and under – five $100 shopping vouchers
    14 years to 21 years – three $250 shopping vouchers
    age open – three $250 shopping vouchers
    mayoral prize – $1000 shopping voucher


    I personally think the prizes are low in value for the possible (commercial) promotional work they may be used for.

    Cheers
    I have this silly idea, that I should actually go and take photos with all this photography gear I have already accumulated, before I collect any more!

    Yes, following my email and phone call, they have updated the site and now have the prize values listed.

    I'm currently negotiating with them regarding the current terms and conditions and as their response has been quite positive, I hope to be able to announce an improved set of T & C later.
