Uncovering real, everyday rural women in the South Burnett

REAL, everyday rural women will be celebrated in a display of photos right here in Kingaroy.

Queensland Rural, Regional and Remote Women's Network representative Claire Kapernick said the purpose of the exhibition was to uncover quiet achievers in the South Burnett.

"We wanted to showcase the everyday women, not those with their face always out there," she said.

"The people who go about doing everyday things in a successful way."

Mrs Kapernick said the exhibition would showcase photos of women taken by amateur photographers.

She said it was up to the photographer who they chose, and there was no right or wrong person.

"As long as it's someone successful in their eyes," she said.

Mrs Kapernick said she took photographs of some very special women, and couldn't wait to share them.

"I took a photo of three people: a baby, a mother, and a grandmother; three generations," she said.

"I wanted to showcase that behind every successful woman is a mother supporting them.

"That's what I was trying to capture."

The Inspiration Rural Women photographic exhibition will be held in the Kingaroy Town Hall Supper Room tomorrow from 11.30am - 1.30pm.

The event will be free, but people are urged to RSVP for catering purposes.
