Pet picture prize not just ’earsay
THIS newspaper’s social photographer Kelly Pilgrim-Byrne won silver at the recently National AIPP Awards with her image of these playful basset hounds Chloe and Ripley.
The first-year professional photographer got the award in the pet-animal category.
The dogs belong to Kelly’s clients Sandra and Craig Millar.
“The photo was taken at dusk in their Roleystone native bush backyard,” Kelly said.
“As the sun slipped towards the horizon, I called both dogs to me and they came bounding, ears flapping, faces grinning, eyes sparkling, giving me the perfect opportunity to capture this action photo.”
