Photo competition a hit with locals
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.
