It was an exciting night last night announcing the winners for our Community Bank® Calendar Competition. About 60 people attended to find out who the winners were for this year. The 12 winning photographs will go to make up our annual calendar for 2018. There was a great mix of photographs chosen and we were pleased that a few younger photographers were picked in that mix! It was an extremely difficult decision for professional photographer, Paul Stoney, our judge who chose Judge's Choice and U18 Judge's Choice with a record field of 131 photographs. 39 photographs were submitted by people under 18 and 861 votes were cast for People's Choice. Photographs of different aspects of our Upper Yarra Valley were showcased, from the Redwood Forest, the Yarra River, our back roads, flowers, animals, rainbows over the Valley and in our backyards, community groups and local identities, all which make up part of our lives in the area. Congratulations to the 12 winners: Judges Choice: Paul Colcheedas for "A Walk on the White Side"; U18 Judges Choice: Lara Bennett (13) for "Bunjil the Creator"; Peoples Choice: Rose Sherriff for "Little Joe's Rainbow"; Directors Choice: Hetty Thomas for "Sunshine on a Rainy Day"; Warburton Branch Staff Choice: Thomas Osburg for "Chestnut Leaves Millgrove"; Yarra Junction Staff Choice: Gary Ockwell for "Winter Cobweb". The 6 other finalists were: Ally Stirland (17) for "Sunset over Junction"; Doug Greenall for "Community Heroes"; Jael Taylor (18) for her Untitled piece; Sarah Illman for her Untitled piece; Kate Baker for "Luminance, The Redwoods" and Graeme Edwards for "Ancient Gums".
