A win for the Matteucci family with Mum Lottie and 12 year Tom winning top awards for the Senior and Junior categories of the second annual Kaukapakapa Photographic Competition. Lottie’s picture of Kaukapakapa in the morning mist, , “Caught the moment fulfilling the brief,” commented Photographer Colin Lunt, “ It just goes to show how much mobile phones have progressed with a combination of perspective, light and mood beautifully captured”. Tom’s photograph of morning mist covered valley with Gibbs Farm in the background also illustrated a “well seen” photo especially coming from a 12 year old! Both received Certificates, $50.00 Westfield Vouchers and an A3 print of their winning entries.
The Peoples’ award was judged during the Sunday Morning Kaukapakapa Market. It proved to be a difficult choice for more than 100 people who were at the market – but the clear winner was 13 year old Luka Richards for his photo of a Kingfisher. He also received a $50.00 Westfied Voucher and an A3 print of his entry.
