Winner of the first Gully News Photo Competition is Olivia Platek.
Olivia sent the cover photo from Pune in India where she is a trainer for her company’s newest graduate hires.
‘I have a copy of Gully News mailed to me to keep up to date when I’m away’, she says.
Thanks to the Ferntree Gully Bowling Club for donating a $50 Dinner Voucher which goes to Olivia Platek. Also $25 Dinner Voucher prizes for two more lively entries of locals reading Gully News in ‘exotic settings’.
Recipients of these are Eddie Gray for his ‘Waiting for the snow at Mt Buller’ and Margaret Hellyer who reads the paper in front of Uluru in Central Australia.
The entries were judged by photographer Barbara Oehring and the Gully News team. Criteria were the exotic location and the quality of a well-composed photo with good impact for a newspaper.
If you missed this time, try for the next issue. Take a copy of Gully News with you when next you travel and send a photo of yourself reading the paper in an exotic setting.
