Honouring a USC legend
The Gerard Mills Memorial Prize honours the memory of USC Honorary Senior Fellow, Mr. Gerard Mills. Gerard devoted much of his life to education, art and photography. He spent almost four years taking more than 30,000 photos of wildlife activity, each week walking kilometers of USC's 100-hectare Sunshine Coast campus to find rare and elusive species.
Mr. Mills documented almost 600 species including everything from the tiniest beetles to the biggest kangaroos, from snakes and birds to bandicoots and sugar gliders. The Gerard Mills Memorial Prize acknowledges a USC student who demonstrates excellence in wildlife photography.
Prize winners will be judged on technical ability, as well as creativity.
