THE City of Joondalup re­ceived a record 179 en­tries in this year’s Capture Na­ture Photography Com­pe­ti­tion.

Pho­tog­ra­phers aged 12 to 18 who live or at­tend school in the City were en­cour­aged to scour their lo­cal coast­line, bush­lands and wet­lands to find the perfect shot to en­ter, along with a cap­tion de­scrib­ing what the im­age means to them.

Duncraig Se­nior High School stu­dent So­phie Hart was an­nounced the win­ner at an awards cer­e­mony at the Joondalup Reception Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day night.

The 14-year-old won $300 for her im­age Find­ing Light, which cap­tured a frog emerg­ing from blades of grass into the sun­light.

Sec­ond place and $200 went to Charli Howard (14) from Lake Joondalup Bap­tist Col­lege, third place and $175 to Nathan Yaschenko (18), of Edgewater, and fourth place and $125 to St Mark’s Angli­can Com­mu­nity School’s Ge­or­gia Davis (13).

The com­pe­ti­tion is held each year to recog­nise World En­vi­ron­ment Day on June 5.
