DISCO, in partnership with the Toowoomba Regional Council, recently finalised the ‘Your Region Your Eyes’ photographic competition after receiving more than 90 entries from young local photographers.
The event invites young people to take photos that encapsulate what the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region means to them. Entries are then put them forward for consideration by professional photographers who in partnership with the public, decide which 12 photos will be featured in an annual calendar to showcase their work and the region in general.
Recently, at an event at Ortem Café in Toowoomba, the winners to be included in the 2015 calendar were announced. Congratulation to the following winners and successful photographers who will be showcased next year.
Overall Winner – Caleb Redmond – Photo: ‘Droplets’
People’s Choice – Saranna Badke – Photo: ‘Sunflower’
Runner Up – Alexander Wright – Photo: ‘Pouncing on the Pollen’
CEO Mike Paton commented;
“This has been an outstanding year and I congratulate all young people on the quality and professionalism of their entries.
It’s important to remember that these young people may have been only photographing for a short period of time and when you consider this it is even more impressive’’ he said.
