Cattle Council of Australia has brought back its Stories from the Station video and photo competition for a second year.

CCA President Markus Rathsmann said the competition was different to others.

“Stories from the Station is about sharing the experiences of the people who live and breathe for the cattle industry,” Mr Rathsmann said.

“Some of our best entries from last year were taken using mobile phones.

“This includes the winner, taken by 18-year-old Charlie Gallagher from Normanton in Queensland.

“This year her photo took pride of place on the cover of the Cattle Council yearbook.

“We’re also keen to see your videos come through. They don’t need to be a big production; they just need to share a little bit of your story.

“We’ll be sharing the entries on Cattle Council’s social media platforms throughout the competition and showcasing the finalists over summer.

“Prize winners for both the video and photo category will receive a prepaid eftpos gift card.

“First place will receive $300, second $200 and third $100.

“The gift cards are also accepted anywhere that has eftpos, so winners use their prize to support local businesses if they wish.

“This year we have introduced an online entry form to make it easier for anyone who doesn’t want to print out the paper form.

“I encourage anyone who’s taken a good photo or two to enter this competition and be in to win.”
