Many regular exhibitors will be returning and new ones appearing for the first time at this year's Photographic Awards run by the York Society Inc at the Sandalwood Gallery.

Co-ordinator, Liz Parker, said that more than 120 photographs would be on display during the exhibition conducted in conjunction with the awards. All works are of the usual high standard from all over the State from Albany to Geraldton.

The exhibition would be officially opened at noon on Saturday, April 12 by immediate past president of the York Society, Bill Roy at Sandalwood Gallery in Avon Terrace. While there were a number of invited guests, members of the general public were welcome, Mrs Parker said.

Categories include open colour, monochrome and creative photography with prize money of $400 for each. Entries for the York Subject category can be from any of these three categories and will receive a prize of $1,000.The judges this year are  Ernest Cesar and Domenic Papalia, both of Camera Electronic, she said

A 2014 calendar with photos mainly from last year’s awards was a sellout, Mrs Parker said.

The exhibition will run from  April 12 to 21 and be open to the public from 10.00am - 4.00pm daily. Admission is adults $2.00 and children $1.00.
