Published on 22 March, 2012
CQUniversity Creative Industries* student Lyn Taylor has been selected among 20 photo award finalists to be part of an exhibition at the Queensland Centre for Photography (QCP) Window Gallery in South Brisbane from April 1-29.
Based on the Sunshine Coast, Lyn is entered in the Queensland Festival of Photography Portrait Prize. The overall winner will be announced on day one of the exhibition.
Lyn found out about the QCP while studying a Diploma of Photo-Imaging through Sunshine Coast TAFE.
"We were exposed to exhibitions and contemporary photographic practice that inspired and excited me," she says.
"I determined that on leaving TAFE I would not only continue to pursue my photographic art-based practice but that I would enter industry competitions to expose myself to external feedback.
"I was very excited to learn that I was one of the 20 finalists."
