Let the votes begin

Voting for the annual Simple Pleasures Photo Competition was held last Wednesday in Brunswick Heads.

Four judges waded through huge cache of wonderful photos to come up with finalists and winners in three categories – young photographers to 16 years, open photography and the People of Bruns. An overall winner was also chosen on the night.

The last category is yet to be decided and the result is in the hands of the public – all of the entries are being displayed in Brunswick Heads shop windows to find out which photo is the People’s Choice winner.

You can vote for your favourite in the People’s Choice Award – voting forms are at the Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre (Park St) and Print Rescue (Fingal Street).

The judges’ winners will be announced at an awards event to be held on Sunday, 16 September at the Brunswick Heads Bowling Club.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
