Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WESTERN Sub­urbs Weekly pho­tog­ra­pher An­drew Ritchie has won an Older Peo­ple Speak Out (OPSO) award for his body of work fea­tur­ing se­niors in the com­mu­nity.

Ritchie took out the ‘Best photo spread, photo se­ries, body of work or gallery of images that de­picts older Aus­tralians in a pos­i­tive man­ner’ in the ru­ral, re­gional and com­mu­nity cat­e­gory.

He ac­cepted the award in Bris­bane last Mon­day night.

The pho­tog­ra­pher said se­niors were an im­por­tant part of the com­mu­nity.

“They’re the first ones to put their hands up to vol­un­teer and that’s why they fea­ture so heav­ily in com­mu­nity news­pa­pers,” Ritchie said.
