The winner of the social media photo competition of the Colour Parkes campaign comes all the way from Queensland. Felicity Cootes from Black Duck Creek near Brisbane snapped the winning image at The Dish. She took the winning entry inside the Parkes Observatory Visitors Centre. Felicity was selected from over 90 social media submissions.
Parkes Shire Council launched the Colour Parkes campaign in September and Council’s Brand and Marketing Manager Katrina Dwyer thanked all the local businesses for participating in the campaign. “Thanks to the Parkes Chamber of Commerce and our destination marketing partners for their support. It was fantastic to have over 16 special offers as part of the campaign. “Despite environmental impacts including flooding and storms during the 10 week campaign period, over 220 Colour Passes were downloaded, over 100,000 people reached via Facebook and over 70 special offers were redeemed at participating businesses,” Katrina said.
