Ama­teur pho­tog­ra­phers show­case skills

Southern Telegraph - - News - Chloe Fraser

Bud­ding pho­tog­ra­phers were recog­nised last Wed­nes­day for their cre­ativ­ity in cap­tur­ing lo­cal sto­ries at the 10th an­nual Act-Be­long-Com­mit Pho­toVoice Rock­ing­ham awards night.

The competition en­cour­aged ama­teur pho­tog­ra­phers to cap­ture im­ages based on the theme stand­ing strong to­gether.

City of Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels said the judges had a tough de­ci­sion in choos­ing win­ners with a high stan­dard of pho­tog­ra­phy en­tered.

“It was a dif­fi­cult task to scale the 500 en­tries down to 101 fi­nal­ists to dis­play through­out the cen­tre,” he said. “With so many out­stand­ing en­tries the judg­ing did not just fo­cus on one as­pect of cri­te­ria. . . but the qual­ity of the photo, the qual­ity of the voice in the photo and how the photo and the voice re­lates to the theme.”

Thirty-seven ama­teur pho­tog­ra­phers were ac­knowl­edged on the night across 17 dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories.
