Young snapper’s whip photo wins award

The youngest ever overall winner of the annual Brunswick Heads Photo Competition, Sophia Dadon, is just nine.

With a photo of some young kids eating whipped ice-cream, nine-year-old Sophia Dadon will go down in history as the youngest overall winner of the annual Brunswick Heads Simple Pleasures Photo Competition.

Sophia’s photo ‘Ice Cream Love’ was the 2018 overall winner.

Keeping in mind this year’s theme – Loving Bruns – Sophia snapped her young friends loving the whipped ice-cream from Bernardi’s on Mullumbimby Street.

In its 14th year, the competition winners were announced at a ceremony at the Bruns Bowlo on Sunday afternoon.

With the Tamara Smith MP, People’s Choice and Instagram awards, judges chose 17 finalists and five winners from 135 print and almost 500 instagram entries.

From those entries a wonderful selection of photos are now for sale in the 2019 Simple Pleasure calendar.

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.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers and is brought to you by this week's sponsors Brunswick Picture House and Billi Christmas Affair.
