We're happy to announce that Joe Brizzi won first place, with his photo of Agata and Luigi Brizzi at home in their vineyards on Hardey Road in 1964.

Trish Wall was first runner up with a photo of her father who built Snaps Dog Food on the corner Kooyong Road and Chamberlain Street in Riverdale.

Pam Hollings was second runner up with her photo c. 1950 of Fred and Ian Hollings laying the floor at their Fulham street home.

Finally, the people's choice winner was awarded to Diane Thornton for her photo taken between 1952 and 1954 of Julia Nuich (nee Smolinski) as a child on their family poultry farm.

Thank you to everyone who entered and we can't wait for next year's competition! The Local History Photographic Competition will be open for submissions again from 2 January 2025. All kinds of photos which represent, commemorate, or celebrate our local history from any period are welcome.
