Candid black and white portraits, scenes of serene seascapes and animals in their natural habitat were among some of the winners of the sixth annual Rotary Photographic Art Show competition on Friday night. A crowd of around 150 people attended the official opening at the Millicent Civic and Art Centre. Three independent judges from the South Australian Photographic Federation had the tough task of judging more than 200 entries from amateur and professional photographers. Photographer and Wattle Range Council economic development manager Steve Chapple praised the high quality of the entries. “By the strength of our youth entries, we will not have a problem with the future of photography in the region,” photographer and Wattle Range Council economic development manager Steve Chapple said. “The quality of the images and the perception of life is completely amazing. “The continued success of the photographic art show is an absolute credit to the hard work of the Rotary Club of Millicent and particularly coordinator Mary Altschwager.” Furner’s Mary Whitehead continued her photographic reign, taking out the Don Ferguson regional and Kimberly-Clark portrait awards for the second consecutive year. In the youth section, Janae Fox took out the Atkins Technicolour Under 19 category, while nine-year-old Keeva Shephard won the Peter Rapp youth incentive award.
