Images go on dis­play

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

He­len Wester­beke, Keith Har­ri­son, Emily Smith and Susie Whe­lan were the big win­ners of the Guardians of Pau­ata­hanui In­let Photo Com­pe­ti­tion for 2012.

Each took out a cat­e­gory of the an­nual con­test, which cel­e­brates the In­let from ev­ery an­gle. Ms Wester­beke won the Na­ture cat­e­gory, Mr Har­ri­son in Re­cre­ation, Ms Smith snap­ping the top shot con­vey­ing Hu­man Im­pact, while Ms Whe­lan won the in­au­gu­ral Artis­tic prize for pho­to­graphs touched-up or ma­nip­u­lated with com­puter soft­ware.

Wil­low Grace-mor­ton dom­i­nated the youth sec­tion, win­ning both the Artis­tic and Hu­man Im­pact sec­tions, while Cleo Ig­gles­den (Na­ture) and Zara Mac­nab (Re­cre­ation) also ex­celled. Among the ju­niors Mer­ryn Giblin showed con­sid­er­able prom­ise, win­ning all but one cat­e­gory; Re­cre­ation, which went to Han­nah Gadd.

Com­pe­ti­tion judge Ge­off Mar­shall, from the Kapiti Cam­era Club, said the over­all qual­ity of images was good and was pleased to see so many en­tries in the ju­nior and youth sec­tions.

‘‘The qual­ity of the Na­ture en­tries was par­tic­u­larly high. It is also good to see a large num­ber of en­trants us­ing the low light of early morn­ing and late evening to en­hance their images.’’

The win­ning pho­tog­ra­phers will re­ceive their prizes from Mana MP Kris Faafoi at the He­len Smith Com­mu­nity Room, Pataka, April 29 at 2pm. Mean­while, in next week’s edi­tion Kapi-mana News will pub­lish the four cat­e­gory win­ners in all their glory and ask readers to vote for their favourite over all. There will be great prizes up for grabs for the pho­tog­ra­phers and readers alike.

Top pho­tos will be dis­played at Porirua Li­brary from April 29 to May 9, then Palmers Life­style Cen­tre, May 10 to 24, Whitby Mall, May 25 to June 8, Light House Pau­ata­hanui, June 9 to 22.
