The informal opening of the outdoor Bayside Photography Competition exhibition on the Brighton Le Sands Pavilion roof was enhanced by perfect weather and a stunning rainbow over Botany Bay.
It also saw the group of talented photographers rush to snap a shot of their winning photograph framed by a rainbow.
Mayor Bill Saravinovksi and Councillor Jennifer Muscat met the local photographers whose images captured the wonder and diversity of our local community at Thursday’s informal opening.
It was also an opportunity for the finalists to talk shop and share their passion for photography, providing our younger photojournalists with some expert insights into the drastic changes in photography.
“This is an amazing space to showcase these images,” Mayor Bill Saravinovski said.
“Council is now looking for suitable locations around Bayside to allow more residents to see these images for themselves, and to encourage our budding photographers.”
The competition, launched in September with a total prize pool of $3800, asked residents to capture the beauty of Bayside’s open spaces, parks, beaches and wetlands.
The winning works capture the essence of living in the thriving Bayside community and Council is now looking to display the photographs in select locations across Bayside.
