Story & photos Eve Jeffery

An entire kaleidoscope of colourful photos greeted the judges of this year’s Simple Pleasures Photography Competition in Brunswick Heads last night.

The judges of the annual competition, which is in its seventh year, were Roz Goodchild, curator/owner of Mina Mina Art Gallery, advertising and editorial photographer David Young, film director and photographer Billy Wrencher, and Echo and Echonetdaily photo journalist Eve Jeffery.

All of the judging panel agreed that the standard of photos was well up on recent years, and this year’s theme ‘The old, the new, the green, the blue’ provided great opportunities for local snappers.

Forty-seven entries were received in this year’s new Brunswick Heads Public School Children’s category. Other divisions were the children 12 years and under, youth 13–18 and the adult open section. In total there were 204 entires including those from the Brunswick Heads school.

Now that the voting is over, the entries will be displayed around town in shop windows for the next three weeks, with a special walk-around-town event on Thursday 23 August, before the winners are announced on 9 September. All winners and a selection of the entries will appear in the 2013 Simple Pleasures calendar available at the Visitor Information Centre at Brunswick Heads.
