In early April the Walhalla Star Hotel posted on their Facebook page news that their state MP, Philip Davis was running a Gippsland photo competition – the prize being a B&B + dinner at the hotel. Having stayed at the Star previously, we knew this was a pretty decent prize!
Since we’d been to Walhalla recently (read about it here) I knew we had a couple of photos that might be worth submitting (I do like to share, after all). The competition was to be drawn on 30 April.
It took several attempts – and all of my lunch break – on the 29th of April to submit photos (email attachment size being the issue). But apparently it was worth it – my photo entitled “Naturally Beautiful” taken in Baw Baw National Park on the track up to Mushroom Rocks/Mt Erica was chosen as the winner!
I admit one of my first thoughts when I was notified that one of my photos had won was “There mustn’t have been too many entrants!”. But every so often you get an unexpected win – and gosh it feels good!
Here is the media release from Philip Davis MP’s office:
I’m curious to see some of the entries when the new website is up. I’ve been promised notification; I’ll try to remember to add a link to it here.
