The weather was kind for our Easter photo exhibition with the crowds coming to both days.
The standard was very high and we had
a record number of entries with the judge choosing
seventeen Highly Commended photos (it is usually just a couple
It took a long time for him to finally choose a winner.
So here are the final results.
We would like to thank all the photographers for making our show such a high standard.
Without you there is no show.
Easter is near and so is our Exhibition. We have many fantastic photos in the competition and a market with lots of variety of goodies for sale. The Easter egg hunt for the children should be fun and the Sunday 'Meet & Mingle' is always a winner.
Just remember in your Easter weekend to come to the exhibition in Moonambel either Saturday or Sunday.
Thanks, Bernard, for your imagination
which goes beyond
the theme of the event.
We love it!
The public was given the task of choosing a favourite artwork.
Not an easy task with the quality and variety of the entries.
Eventually, at the 'Meet and Greet' on Sunday afternoon,
'Moonambel CBD' by Maggie Barnes-Oake
was declared the favourite.
Maggie is our own very talented artist
who has many artistic styles under her belt both 2D and 3D
but is recently dabbling in caricatures involving Moonambel people, places and events.
We always enjoy seeing her latest work
recognising who and what she is depicting in each artwork.
We wonder what she will do in her next venture.
Local politician Louise Staley donated the $200 prize
and enjoyed being able to meet the artist as well as present the cheque.
The event concluded with the magnificent spread
and local wines being enjoyed by one and all...
Another successful event put the rest.

The weekend saw scores of people passing through our doors.
We heard many positive comments and we feel that this has been the best photo exhibition to date.
The quality was astounding.
Even though only one person could win, the Stawell Camera Club judges wanted to say that many were of winning quality and it was very hard to narrow down to just one.
So to all those wonderful people who entered this year, please enter again next year to showcase your talents.
Who knows...you may win!
There are 138 photos to be viewed.
Finding the best in the show was an extremely hard job.
Nobody envied the independent judges.
The Moonambel Rec. Reserve Committee always stage a market on the Saturday morning of our 2 day exhibitions.
The community looks forward to a browse of the stalls as well as patronising our exhibitions. We also run a barbecue and Devonshire teas at the market as part of providing a service for the community.
Our annual photo competition is on once more.
This time we invite photographers to give us a
wide range of interpretations of the theme.
Contact Jan or Kaye for an entry form if you can't download the one here.
Photos can be left at the Moonambel General Store or contact us if you prefer another form of delivery.
Get thinking! It will be on us before we realise!
