I was very privileged to attend the inaugural Click West Photo Competition last night as a sponsor which was held at the Hoyt’s cinema at Carousel.
The event was the brainchild of Ric Mc Donald and was organised by he and his wife Ailsa.
What a great event and to see all of the talented images up in all their glory on the big screen in full HD and very sharp.
North Star Cruises offered a cruise on our Montes Extravaganza cruise next year as one of the major prizes and the lucky winner of that cruise was Tracy Leigh in the Portfolio section.
Her images are featured above and a very big ‘WELL DONE’ from me to Tracy and all the winners of this years competition.
For those of you who didn’t enter this year, I would very much keep an eye out for the Click West Competition next year as the prizes were numerous in numbers and also excellent in quality.
Apart from the cruise on the True North, there were prizes such as a new Canon 5D MK3, a sutio light kit, and Eizio monitor, printers and all sorts of goodies to wet the appetite of any keen photographer.
So, again a very big thank you to Ric and Ailsa and I look fwd to seeing the competition grow in the years to come!
If anyone out there would like to enter an online photo comp that could result in your image becoming a postage stamp, together with some other cool prizes, there is a comp out there that you can find here which is looking for images that show what Australia is all about.
You will find more details on the link above, but the competition closes on the 6th of December, so you will need to get a wriggle along!
The attached photo is what last years winner looked like to give you some inspiration!
I have just found out that I have taken 3rd prize in the Open International Loupe Awards in the Science and Nature category for the above image, Mothers Love!
May my day it has! 🙂
You can see all the winners here.
I recently entered the International Loupe Awards and managed to snare a few awards!
Silver for Mothers Love with a score of 87 points.
Bronze for the Carnac Stitch with a score of 80 points.
Bronze for the Busselton Jetty fireworks shot with a score of 79 points.
Bronze for the Pink Lake shot with a score of 79 points.
Pretty happy with those scores…..but..must try harder…need some Gold! 🙂
Well that was a very well supported competition with a number of very different and well composed images for people to vote on.
For a while there I thought that number 3 was a shoe in as Ailsa seemed to be getting a run of votes, but number 7 had a late run and won quite convincingly in the end. Number 7 ended up with 40 votes to number 3 at 35 votes, then 1 & 2 an equal 3rd.
So, if the owner of the Lighthouse Photo can contact Ben at Team Digital (0419 933 312), he will let you know where to collect your prize!
Well done to all entrants and stay tuned to this blog as next week I will be announcing the format for next years Australia Day True North Adventure!!!
