The following photos submitted to our 2024 photo competition captivated our judge, Jacqui Bateman the most.


Grand Prize Winner


Endless Summer - Phillip Hardy
Endless Summer – Phillip Hardy

The stand out photo of the day.
Lovely composition & tones, added interest of surfers silhoutted against the sky cemented this as the winner.

Special Mention

Sea Horse - Photo Competition 2024
Seahorse – Anneliese Staubli

Very quirky shot of seahorse & dog.
Great colours and exposure.
Would like to see this image cropped more at the top to exclude dog’s eye & the sky to take away from the crooked horizon.

Honorable Mention

Vertical Shoreline - 2024 Photo Competition
Vertical Shoreline – Brittney Scott

Lovely shot, tones & composure.
Would like to see this image with more sand on the left hand top shoreline to make the image flow a little more.  More detail in the leaves by increasing aperture could have added more interest, rather than distracting from the image.

Honorable Mention

Cliffs - Photo Competition 2024
Cliffs – Nikki Kirkland


Great composition and light.  Lovely image.


Honorable Mention

Frog - Photo Competition 2024
Frog – Angelita Zammit

Beautiful frog macro.

Thank you to all those that entered.
