Richardson striving to award Mayor's Choice Award in comp

BYRON Shire mayor Simon Richardson has been hard at work judging the Brunswick Heads Simple Pleasure Photo Competition Exhibition this week, picking his favourite for the Mayor's Choice Award.

"It is another terrific year of our Shire's community being creative and celebrating what it is to spend time in Bruns," he said.

"It is an incredibly difficult decision which will be made all the harder by the diversity of subjects and snapshots of the town."

Winners in all catagories will be announced at the special award presentation tomorrow at the Brunswick Heads Bowling Club.

The judges once again had a hard time choosing between all the fantastic entries in this year's competition with the theme, Brunswick Heads. Eat. Play. Love.

The chosen finalists are (in no particular order): Khan Wood, Olivia Langtree, Stacee Cole, Summer Bradbury, Bella Griffiths, Deb Kent, Rodney Nancarrow, Nick Burrows, Ian Furber, Jodie Clowes, Sandra Gray, Michelle Begg, Paul Begg, Taylajayne Hunter, Aytan Lachish, Brodee Emery.

The top cash prize of $500 will be awarded at the presentation to the overall winner, and there are also prizes for our section winners in Over 55, Adult, Youth and Child and the Mayor's Choice.

You can inspect all the entries at the town exhibition held until September 25. Photos are hung in town centre shops and you can pick up a people's choice nomination form and catalogue at the Visitor Centre to vote for your favourite photos in the People's Choice Award.

Completed nomination forms can be dropped off at the Visitor Centre or at Network Video.

All are welcome to attend the awards presentation tomorrow from 4.30-6pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children (12 and under). A light buffet is included. Contact Cherie Heale at the Visitor Centre on 6685 1003.
