This morning before I went to work, I went to Meadow Mews to do a couple of jobs and check out the photo that was a finalist in the 'Smile' photography competition. It was a nice surprise to see my friend Kylie there who is also a finalist in the competition! You can check her photo out here.
I saw the photo of Dad and Pop straight away as it was on the end of the display.
I then started to walk around it looking at all the other photos, and there was a second photo that I entered!! It was also a finalist and I didn't know about it! I couldn't believe it. It was one that I really liked of Kobe laughing at Harri on the bed. This afternoon I took the boys and Aaron up to see it.
This is the photo that was chosen.
There are twenty photos in the final and they are on display until October 3rd - go and check them out - if you do and fill in an entry form you could win $5000. Some national judges are coming down to judge them, and the winner will be announced on that day. The winner at each shopping centre winning a camera and printer package, and the national winner winning $10,000.
I'm not holding my breath as there were some great photos (and I've already decided which ones I think will have a chance at winning!), but its exciting having two photos in the final. It's nice that we also get to keep the photos after the competition has finished.
