Australian photographer on board as judge of life and light photo competition

Professional photographer and writer, Fiona Lake, has come on board as one of the judges for this year’s Life and Light in the Western Region Photographic Competition. Fiona specialises in photographing the largest cattle stations on the planet and will bring her incredible experience to the Western Region.

“Fiona Lake is an exceptional photographer and her talent and expertise in capturing the stories behind the world’s largest cattle stations makes her the perfect choice as a judge for the competition. We are really excited to have her,” said Martha Gouniai, Local Land Services Western Region Photographic Competition Coordinator.

The Life and Light in the Western Region Photographic Competition is an amateur photography competition which gives an opportunity for all residents of the Western Region to capture and share what makes this region beautiful and unique.

“The inclusion of a judge of such high calibre will provide a real opportunity for the talent of our region to shine on a much larger spectrum,” said Martha.

Fiona Lake will be running photographic workshops in Broken Hill as part of the Rural Women’s Gathering from October 28-30, 2016.

“I am really thrilled to have the opportunity to judge the competition this year, this is my first time visiting Broken Hill and I look forward to uncovering some of the incredible talent hidden in the Western Region,” said Fiona Lake.

With competition entries closing this Friday 30 September and more than $4000 in prize money to be won, there has never been a better time to pull out your camera and enter your photos.

All of the entries for the 2016 competition will be uploaded on the ‘Life and Light in the Western Region’ Facebook page where the entry with the most ‘likes’ will take out the ‘People’s Choice’ Award.
