Stallholder Applications Invited for Somerset Fun Run

Calling All Somerset Innovators

IF you know a Somerset resident who has made a significant contribution as an innovator, trailblazer or ground breaker then nominate them to be featured in a new and exciting photographic exhibition.

Somerset Regional Council is looking for 12 people living in the region who have made a positive impact in any field, be it industry, agriculture, tourism, arts, sports, health or community.

The stories of these 12 people will then be captured as part of Council’s Picturing Innovation project for public display at the Somerset Regional Art Gallery – The Condensery in Toogoolawah at the end of 2018.

To find out more about this exciting project and how to get involved visit http://www.somerset.qld.gov.au/radf or phone 5424 4000.

Nominations for individuals close 5pm on Monday, 14 May 2018.
