2012 photo competition
A record number of eligible entrants participated in the third Fourays Photos and they submitted a wonderful selection of images for the competition. The images were predominantly of current aircraft and operations, but there was an encouraging collection of some historical photos, scanned from slides. In all, 22 serving soldiers, civilians and Association members contributed 61 images for the judge’s considerations.
Such was the quality of the imagery, the three judges, Peter Simpson, Melinda Rene and Conway Bown, had a very challenging job sifting through them all until the final round had reduced the field to 15. In the end there were three images that were clearly the prize winners. In first place, with his atmospheric image entitled “Black Hawk in the Mist at The Plains” was Joshua Eades from 6 Avn Regt. Second with his technically complex image “Charge” was Michael Rueger from the Army Helicopter School, and Third was Ceara Tyrrell from 1 Avn Regt with an evocative photo of the ARH Tiger, “In the Cold Light”.
While these three images were worthy winners, they were among an outstanding field, and all entrants are to be congratulated on the quality of their photography. There are some truly talented photographers in the Australian Army aviation community.
On behalf of the Committee and members of the Association I congratulate the three winners on their achievement, and commend all of the entrants for being part of the competition and contributing to the visual historical record of Australian army aviation.
