The Eurobodalla Photographic Club's annual awards normally take place at the Botanic Gardens as part of the Christmas dinner. The devastating fires meant the awards were delayed this time and were, instead, announced at the end of January.
The judging for the competition was carried out by the outstanding professional photographer Ben Eyles.
Ben commented on the high standard of photographs this year.
The First Prize was sponsored by Perfex, (the Batemans Bay Performance and Exhibition Centre Working Group) and the President of Perfex, Dr Sue McKenzie, presented the prizes.
Sue also offered a very interesting analysis and comments on the 8 photos that were finalist for the 2019 annual awards.
The winners were:
1st Prize and Perfex award - Brian Gunter - Magic Fingers
2nd - Daniel Bateman - Sleepy Seal
3rd - Jayden Muir -Tasman Island
People's Choice - Brian Gunter - Dancing Egret
Highly Commended entries were:
