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.
