Peak pics winners
MT BULLER has announced the winners of its annual Peak Pics photo competition.
Mt Buller’s Peak Pics photo competition is a contest open to photographers of all levels of experience, from enthusiastic amateurs to savvy professionals.
Now in its sixth year, participants submitted their entries via the Mt Buller Facebook page capturing the theme “Never Miss a Moment”, taken within the Mt Buller and Mt Stirling resort boundaries during 2016.
This year, Peak Pics received more than 250 entries across four categories comprising of People, Landscape, Action, and Light.
The judging panel was made up of five Mt Buller based photographers: Tony Harrington of The Photoshop, Kit Rundle Mud-skim extraordinaire, Black and White portrait specialist Sealey Brandt, the legendary Mark “Woody” Woodsford, and Mt Buller resort photographer Andrew Railton.
It was a challenging task for the judges to select the winners and finalists.

People: ‘Sunset Grins’, Kieran O’Brien;
Landscape: ‘Good morning Mt Buller’, Maddi Shae;
Action: ‘Line to the Sky’, Thomas Duvillard;
Light and overall winner: ‘An unexpected view’, Matt Austin.
A People’s Choice award was voted by the general public via the Mt Buller Peak Pics entry page, and Elise Young was awarded the title with her entry titled “Sunset Perfection” under the Landscape category.
Group manager of marketing, sales and events for Mt Buller Resort Management, Gillian Dobson, said: “Peak Pics is a fantastic opportunity for people to show off their photography skills and highlight the beauty of our alpine environment.
“We have seen incredible talent this year and it’s great to see the number of participants grow every year.”
The collection of artwork will be framed and hung, along with being showcased in an artistic display at Alpine Central, Mt Buller.
