Tasmania in Focus summer winners

More than 300 photos were submitted to The Examiner’s summer reader photo competition. 

Pictures of furry friends, misty landscapes and family fun were entered in Tasmania in Focus’ summer edition. 

We carefully judged hundreds of photos to create a Top 36 shortlist. These images were judged by the community in Tasmania in Focus’ People’s Choice Award.

Natalie Keane’s image received the most votes in the People’s Choice Award. 

The Examiner photographer Scott Gelston was tasked with picking this season’s winning shot. 

He said competition was tough, but Glyn Johnson’s use of natural lighting, shadows and perspective was a standout.

“It was taken at the perfect moment, as the sunlight hit the peak, separating the mountain from the foreground," Gelston said.

Images by Matt Stewart and Daniel Towns received a highly commended.

An autumn edition of the photo competition launched on March. Tasmania’s happy snappers will have until May 13 to submit their autumn-themed photos. 

Reminder: the competition is not restricted to landscape images. We want to see Tasmanians celebrating our glorious, rugged landscape.
