Entries taken by students from the 5 SOTAs in WA were forwarded to the organisers of the competition to decide on the winners in the various categories.

Well done to all our students who entered. There were some absolutely fantastic scenic photos which took my breath away, some very creative photos and some which made me smile with the humour displayed. I did not envy the judges their task!
