A BEAU­TI­FUL snap­shot of a kayaker on the wa­ter has taken out first prize in the City of Ar­madale’s Fo­cus pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion.

Weronika Werner took out the present day cat­e­gory with her photo ti­tled Kayak­ing at Cham­pion Lakes, with Katie Lan­gridge and Leah Mizen com­ing in sec­ond and third re­spec­tively.

Su­san Downey-Yar­lett won the his­tor­i­cal cat­e­gory with her photo Ar­madale Pools, while hon­ourable men­tions were given to Noviyah Crunk­horn and Christy Win­tle.

Win­ners re­ceived a cash or voucher prize and a pro­fes­sion­ally mounted print of their photo.

Ar­madale Mayor Henry Zelones said they had re­ceived more than 50 en­tries for this year’s com­pe­ti­tion, which was run un­der the theme ‘The City at Play’.

“Our res­i­dents spend their leisure time in so many dif­fer­ent ways and lo­ca­tions through­out the City, and this year the en­tries cap­tured some re­mark­able im­ages of our lo­cal parks and play­grounds, com­mu­nity events and fa­cil­i­ties,” he said.

“For any­one in­ter­ested in view­ing the win­ning pho­to­graphs, visit the dis­play at the Ar­madale Li­brary un­til Fri­day, June 22.”

Weronika Werner re­ceives her prize from Mayor Henry Zelones and Coun­cil­lor Gary Smith.
