2014 Wattle Range Council Photographic Exhibition

2014 Wattle Range Council Photographic Exhibition

On Friday, 17th October 2014, 5SE Radio announcer and keen photographer Mr Jase Scheidl opened the Wattle Range Photographic Competition before a capacity crowd of over 150 people, including photographers, family and community. In its seventh year the record number of entries exceeded all expectations, with 233 entries and 35 outstanding junior entries the exhibition filled the Gallery to capacity. Jase commented on the outstanding photography reflecting the diversity of the Region and the talented youth who exhibited. He praised the calibre and quality and how the exhibition reflected the outstanding talent that ably captured the essence, style and vibrancy of the Wattle Range Region with an emphasis on People, Places, Product and Performance.

Judge Steve Chapple (multiple winner of this exhibition) assisted by Raquel Mustillo of the South Eastern Times commented that the task of judging was far more difficult than imagined and took many hours to finalise. He was impressed by the high standard and the quality of the photography and attention to detail. They said “Everyone – no matter what type of camera, what skill level, what subject- should be very proud to have their images hanging here tonight.”

Raquel on announcing the winners said “It’s a great exhibition showcasing images ranging from our professionals to the talented new photographers and the stunning work by our young photographers”.
