Councillor Paul Tatton will present the winners of the Australian Body Art Carnivale photography competitions with their prizes at 10am this Saturday 5 June in Eumundi. The prizegiving will be held within an exhibition of the Carnivale photography competition entries -- set up within The Original Eumundi Markets.

The winners are as follows:

    Photo print competition
    First Prize -- Rosemary Beard for 'A good fairy perhaps...'
    Highly Commended -- Tania Oldfield for 'Living Canvas'

    Digital competition
    First Prize -- Nicky Stone for 'Dance'
    Highly Commended -- Michael Kuiri for 'Blooded Amazon'

Event Manager Danielle Taylor says Saturday's temporary exhibition within the markets will also give members of the public a chance to vote for their favourite image.

"We'll be awarding a People's Choice prize to the photographer whose image gets the most votes on Saturday," says Danielle.

Danielle says their images have to be seen to be appreciated.

"The quality of photographic images submitted in the competitions this year was truly impressive," she says. "Apart from giving members of the public an insight into what makes a truly great shot, the display at Eumundi Markets will also give visitors who missed the Carnivale a taste of what it was all about".

Danielle explains that while the other competition winners were announced on the Carnivale weekend, the photography winners have just been announced this week.

"Photographers in both the digital and photo print categories had to submit images taken on the Carnivale weekend, and with the myriad picture opportunities, we needed to ensure they had ample time to sort through their images before submitting a maximum of three shots in each category.

The next thing you need to do is put the dates for the 2011 Australian Body Art Carnivale in your diary -- and spread the word to your friends and colleagues far and wide!  The dates are 13, 14 and 15 May 2011.
