"I took this photo on the way to school early In the morning. I decided to call it Dawn, this is because when I glanced over the field I saw something I hadn’t really noticed before, I saw how the earth began it’s day in these temperatures, with the sun rising and showing itself to the world one slowly. It was doing what I was doing, just starting."
"An unexpected moment when a butterfly joined in on our catch up. We both had never seen a butterfly so close. It hung around for a moment before it flew away. It’s moments like this which makes our cold Canberra winter feel just that bit warmer."
In no particular order we would like to thank the below finalists, Khaos Wright, Alia Josephine, Daniela Velasquez and Lachlan Foote.
