Judge: Sean McGowan


The Border Watch, Thomas Miles


Miles’ image of two netballers captures a story in a single shot. Simply put, Glencoe went down to Kalangadoo. The composition of the players’ relative angles combined with their facial expressions works perfectly to convey the drama and desperation of the grand final. Although a little wide in its original form, the final crop was used to excellent effect in print.


The Bunyip, Phil Williams

Fly Like an Eagle

A terrific spontaneous capture. Whilst many sports photos can be anticipated during the action, this player’s backflip would probably have been a surprise making the image that much more difficult to catch. The final crop balanced the image’s elements but it may have been over-sharpened in post in an attempt to save the focus which seems to have locked on the background face. Selectively sharpening the flipper’s face and unsharpening the background face may have visually altered the focal depth of the picture.


Plains Producer, Lesley Little

Great Balls of Fire

A spectacular action photograph featuring excitement and even emotion, thanks to the lone audience member in the background. Technically the final product may not quite have hit the mark but the final newsprint version was striking.


Plains Producer, Ethan Allen

Allen presented numerous well-composed and cropped entries and shows a flair for football action photography.

The Courier, Andrew Ausserlechner

Classic speccy! Well caught.
