Roger Brownsey, an­other South Waikato pho­tog­ra­pher, won in the monochrome prints sec­tion with his pho­to­graph of a wind surf­ing gan­net.

There were also sec­tions and tro­phies for pro­jected im­ages, in which Yvaan Adams of Mangakino, with a por­trait of a New Zealand Fal­con, and Chris Ad­kins of Ho­ra­hora, with his pa­tience to get a study of a Fan­tail, were given the monochrome awards.

The club is also stag­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion at the Art of Main Gallery in Ti­rau from Oc­to­ber 12- 26 dis­play­ing 54 pho­to­graphs de­pict­ing ‘‘ Our New Zealand through the Art of Pho­tog­ra­phy’’, the re­sult of a com­pe­ti­tion with en­tries in­vited from mem­bers of cam­era clubs in the cen­tral North Is­land.

A se­lec­tion panel has cho­sen the prints for the ex­hi­bi­tion and fi­nal win­ners will be de­cided by lo­cal artist pho­tog­ra­pher Lynette Small­wood of Puke­tu­rua.

The suc­cess­ful pic­tures will be an­nounced at a pre­sen­ta­tion on Oc­to­ber 13.
