Magpie Springs Photographic competition was a success with more photographers/sponsors taking part again this year. The 17 Photographers making the cut were professionals/keen amateurs and (this is the fun part) people who have never shown their work before and have used this as a launching pad for their work. With more sponsors, we were able to share the love…the point being to encourage photography as an art form and share with visitors this unique and beautiful part of South Australia in the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula. Imagination, experience and discovery the focus
These are the finalists and winners we look forward to running this again in 2018
