There was an excited buzz around the Gardens’ Theatrette on Saturday 18 October as award winners in the 18th annual Friends’ schools photographic competition gathered to receive their prizes.

The competition is run for students from ACT and Queanbeyan Region high schools and colleges. All photos must be taken in the Australian National Botanic Gardens and feature some aspect of the Gardens, and in categories involving black and white, colour and images altered digitally or in dark room processing. 

The Friends would like to thank all the schools that participated and also Friends and ANBG staff who made the competition happen. Competition judge Ken Crawford congratulated the winners and all entrants and gave very useful advice about ways to improve an already high standard of photography.

Entries were on display in the Visitor Centre until Sunday 9 November.

More information about the schools' photo competition is on this website.
