Could you be the new face of the tropics?

Feature in Tropical North Queensland content

As the regional tourism organisation for Tropical North Queensland, it’s our goal is to inspire people to visit through creative marketing materials, but we need your help to do it!

We’re always on the hunt for fresh faces to feature in photo shoots, social media content and other marketing material. We feature people from all walks of life in our content, so no matter who you are or where you come from we’d love to hear from you.

What does it mean to be talent?

Despite the title, you don’t need any special talents to feature in content. In simple terms, being talent on a photo or film shoot means that you are in front of the camera.

Your job is to help us capture natural moments and reactions to experiences around the region, under the direction of the photographer or videographer.

Content may be used by TTNQ or our partners and members in marketing campaigns, social media, website and will be hosted on our image gallery. If you’d like to keep a copy of the content you are featured in, we are happy to provide this upon request under most circumstances.

What’s the next step?

Once you’ve registered your interest in featuring as talent, we will record your details in our database. We’ll reach out if there are any opportunities that we think you are suited for.

If you have any questions, or would like a bit more information, please contact us at [email protected]

Michaelmas Cay isn’t just a picture perfect sand cay, it’s also a significant breeding site for many species of birds including noddies, boobies (yes, really) and terns with up to 20,000 breeding pairs on the island at one time 🐦✨🏝️
