2005| 60th Anniversary of the end of World War II
RIHG received two Brisbane City Council Community Grants totalling $13,532 for a project to mark this anniversary. It had three strands – each a project in its own right:
World War II Visual Exhibition – a display of local maps, photos and realia from World War II.
Photo Competition – One aspect of the exhibition sought photos in two sections:
a) Local residents during World War II and
b) World War II sites in the local area.
This competition was supported by members of the Forest Lake Photography Club, who attended a one-day portrait “photo-shoot” and a sites convoy tour. Entries were judged by Anne Russell, an experienced judge with the Photographic Society of Queensland.
