Focus Photography Exhibition & Awards

January 22, 2022

The FOCUS Photography Exhibition & Awards, sponsored by Tassal, is our annual community photographic exhibition. Open to photographers of all ages and skill levels, this is a great opportunity to engage the entire family in a family-friendly community exhibition. We look forward to an array of diverse images from amongst a number of different categories and invite you to 'give it your best shot'.

The popular Mission Arts FOCUS Photographic Exhibition and Awards is on again this year, so get out your mobile phone, old Box Brownie or fancy SLR camera and give us your best shot.

Photographers and 'happy snappers' are encouraged to start snapping to win over $1000 worth of prizes. The Exhibition opens Saturday 19 March, 2022 and will be showing until Wednesday, 26 April, 2022, giving photographers plenty of time to grab that perfect shot.

"Anyone can participate in this exhibition, from kids to seniors and most people have at least one photo they are really proud of. This exhibition gives people a chance to share their photos with the community. And who knows; they may take out a great prize along the way!" said Neil Clarke, President of Mission Arts.

There are categories to suit all photographers and individual award prizes are sponsored by Mission Beach businesses:

Landscape or Seascape
Wet Tropics Australian Flora and Fauna
Judges Choice
People's Choice Award

Our major event sponsor, Tassal, will officially open the FOCUS Photography Exhibition and Awards on Saturday 19 March, 2022 at 6pm. Bookings will be required to ensure compliance with current Public Health Directives and can be made at

The event is free of charge but gold coin donations are gratefully accepted. All proceeds will further the ongoing exhibitions, events and programming at Mission Arts.
