Taking one for the team, the judges get snapped in a selfie with the Echo’s Tree Faerie – Billy Wrencher, Ros Goodchild and Paul Spooner hold their favourite snaps in the 2015 photo competition.

Entries for the 2015 Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce Simple Pleasures Photo Competition closed last Friday and yesterday judges set to work to find a winner.

With the theme Brunswick Heads – Eat. Play. Love. judges were spoiled for choice as the standard of photography was very high.

Just under 100 entries crossed the table and 15 finalists were selected before winners in the Children, Youth, Open and Over 55s were selected along with an overall winner.

All judges agree that there were some great photos and the Youth section in particular showed great promise for the future of photography.

Winners will be announced in a ceremony at the Brunswick Heads Bowlo on Sunday September 20 – finalists will be contacted prior to the event.
