Diversity highlighted in photographic showcase

FROM a dusty road near Birdsville, to a flooded Southern Downs creek the geography was as diverse as the photographs entered in the 2013 QCWA Emuvale Branch's competition.

Branch president Doreen McGahan said the competition was one of the most popular events on the local calendar with the winners going onto the division finals in Warwick on March 18.

"The photography competition is open to the general public as well as members and is always well supported," she said.

This year the entries were dominated by the behind-the-lens efforts of two members Darien Fritz and Dorothy Kable, in addition to enthusiastic amateur photographer Laurelee Atkinson. The winners this year were:

  1.  Class - QCWA activities: 1 Darien Fritz with Emuvale; runner-up Dorothy Kable.
  2.  Class - nature close up: 1 Jean Wilkinson with The kookaburra; runner-up Dorothy Kable.
