Photos portray friendship
Winners of the Northern Rivers Schools Photographic Challenge for 2009, organised by the Lismore Camera Club, were recently unveiled with first prize going to Jess Gray of Emmanuel Anglican College Ballina for this stunning photo.
The theme was 'Friendship' and, according to Lismore Camera Club's president Kevin Bowden, the competition attracted some very creative entries, some of which were traditional darkroom prints, some taken on digital cameras and some computer-manipulated images.
Entries in the Northern Rivers Schools Photographic Challenge will be on show at this year's North Coast National, which runs from October 22 to 24 at the Lismore Showground.
