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.
