Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

THE City of Ar­madale has an­nounced the win­ner of its Dale does Sum­mer pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion.

Stu­art McKay has won a $2500 shop­ping spree for his pho­to­graph of his daugh­ter Eilidh run­ning with a bal­loon.

Em­i­grat­ing from Scot­land 11 years ago, Mr McKay be­came in­ter­ested in pho­tog­ra­phy when he was 17.

“I started with live mu­sic pho­tog­ra­phy, go­ing to gigs at 17, 18, then the pas­sion de­vel­oped from there.”

He said he only be­came se­ri­ous about pho­tog­ra­phy in the last three years af­ter buy­ing a DSLR cam­era.

The pho­to­graph was tin­kered a lit­tle in dig­i­tal edit­ing to iso­late the colour of the bal­loon and add the City of Ar­madale logo.

“These days any­one can down­load an app on their phone and do it,” Mr McKay said.

The City was in­un­dated with sub­mis­sions from bud­ding pho­tog­ra­phers, with run­ners up re­ceiv­ing a hand­ful of spot prizes in­clud­ing dou­ble passes to the cinema, free ad­mis­sion to the Ar­madale Aquatic Cen­tre and food and re­fresh­ment vouch­ers.

En­tries had to be a por­trait or a land­scape at one of the City’s sum­mer events.

Win­ners were cho­sen for the pho­to­graph which showed cre­ativ­ity and best cap­tured the feel­ing of sum­mer in Ar­madale.
