Queensland Spatial Excellence Awards (QSEA)
The Queensland Region recently celebrated its 6th QSEA at the Victoria Park Golf Club. 160 guests celebrated ‘under the stars’ – not outdoors, but under glittering table arrangements of stars – and enjoyed the announcements of the QSEA winners for 2011. An impressive list of special guests attended, including the Queensland Chief Scientist, the Queensland Information Commissioner, a board member from the Queensland Reconstruction Board, and the President of the International Map Trade.
Representatives from the Clem Jones Group of Companies presented the inaugural Clem Jones Medal to the winner of the Student Award. For a full list of award winners, please visit the QSEA page at www.sssi.org.au/qld.
