More than a Snapshot - Winners of the Photo Competition

Left to Right: Joseph, Nigel, Natalie & Tizia
What a tough competition to judge!!

Winners of the Eastern Regional Libraries "What's Your Story" competition gathered to celebrate and receive their well deserved prizes. The presentation was attended by Councillor Nathalie Thomas of Maroondah City Council, Joseph Cullen the CEO of Eastern Regional Libraries and the competition judges Nigel Roper and Tizia May from Croydon Camera House.

We have to say - the standard of work submitted to the competition was outstanding. It really blew us away. So from ERL, we'd like to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated and to encourage everyone who entered to keep going with their photography skills. We would also like to thank Nigel for judging the competition (not an easy task!!) and for printing the winning photos onto canvas - they looked amazing.
