Photo com­pe­ti­tion a hit with lo­cals

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

AL­MOST 250 pho­tos were en­tered into the Whit­sun­day Times 2014 cal­en­dar com­pe­ti­tion, with three in­de­pen­dent judges de­cid­ing on the 12 win­ning im­ages on Mon­day.

The pho­tos cap­tured the essence of liv­ing in the Whit­sun­days, with wildlife, scenery, fam­ily fun and out­door adventures all fea­tur­ing heav­ily.

The com­pe­ti­tion was open to all am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phers and the va­ri­ety and qual­ity re­ceived was out­stand­ing.

Whit­sun­day Times man­ag­ing ed­i­tor Leanne Aber­nethy said she was very im­pressed with the stan­dard of pho­tos sub­mit­ted, and that the im­ages were judged on their orig­i­nal­ity and va­ri­ety. “The three in­de­pen­dent judges had a tough job. The num­ber and qual­ity of pho­tos were re­ally ex­cit­ing and ex­pressed what it is to live in the Whit­sun­days. It is al­ways great to see our read­ers get in­volved in our com­pe­ti­tions, and we look for­ward to pro­vid­ing 10,000 copies of the cal­en­dar to the com­mu­nity for free later this month.”

Whit­sun­day Times thanked ev­ery­one who sub­mit­ted their pho­tos. The 12 win­ners have been no­ti­fied and Whit­sun­day Times read­ers will re­ceive a copy of the cal­en­dar for free with their news­pa­per de­liv­ery on De­cem­ber 19.
