winner of the 2014 'Still in Focus' people's choice, Benalla Camera Club, Daren Fawkes photo 'mother and daughter'

The winner of the People’s Choice award at the Benalla Camera Club’s annual Still in Focus photographic exhibition is the sublime landscape photo taken by Daren Fawkes of a cow and calf in the early morning fog along Midland Hwy near Lake Nillahcootie.

This image scored more than 18 per cent of the total votes and Daren has won a canvas enlargement thanks to Shepparton Camera House.

Three voters’ prizes, each a dinner voucher from Benalla Golf Club, were won by Darren Edwards from Oxley, Terry Parkin from Benalla and Mary Gilbert from Sunbury.

The club also wishes to thank Swanpool Bowling Club for the use of its facilities, and the Swanpool and District Community Development Association for the invitation to once again hold the exhibition in conjunction with the Bald Archy Prize.

After 16 days and more than 1200 visitors, Benalla Camera Club closed the door on its annual exhibition Still in Focus.

The exhibition was a fantastic success, with 24 photographers showing off their best work to the community.

Together with the Bald Archy Prize, the mural at the Swanpool store and the photographic exhibition, the little community at Swanpool can be proud of what it has achieved.

The next meeting of Benalla Camera Club will be on Wednesday, August 6 at the Avon St Campus of Benalla P-12 school. The meeting starts at 7.30pm and photographers of all abilities are most welcome.

For more information phone Jen Fawkes (president) on 0430242992 (AH).
