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.
