Photos turn heads
MEMBERS of the Phillip Island Camera Club hosted the 5th Gippsland Interclub Photographic Exhibition at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum at Korumburra recently.
The show featured entries from the six participating Gippsland camera clubs.
Jill Rogers, secretary of The Artists’ Society of Phillip Island Inc, was invited to open proceedings, and entertained the crowd with a humorous play on words on the development of photography.
Best photograph was won by Linda Keagle of Foster Camera Club and the overall winning club was Coal Country Camera Club, with Phillip Island Camera Club coming second and Sale Camera Club third.
Congratulations to Phillip Island members Kym Wormald (third place) and Darren Callesen (merit).
