Persistence paid off for the winner of the attraction's annual photo competition.

Plenty of shivering in the cold night air was required to capture the winning image in this year’s Bell Tower Photographic Competition. 

Photographer Tracey Killen said she waited a long time to get the shot she wanted, eventually coming away with a picture titled Puddling, which depicts the Bell Tower on a wet night, surrounded by buildings under construction. 

It was named the winner in the competition’s Judges Selection category, and clearly reflects this year’s competition theme of “sense of place”, which the judges said inspired “some incredibly creative entries”.

Christian Mueller won the People’s Choice category with his dramatic black-and-white shot titled “A Space For New and Old” (pictured at top). And the Youth winner was 15-year-old Taylor Yates, for an atmospheric shot called “Within Perspective”. 

Both Tracey and Christian win a Canon EOS camera kit and a Shoot Photography workshop voucher. Taylor’s prize is a Canon PowerShot G9X Mark II camera.

Everyone who voted in the People’s Choice category went into the running to win a two-day Margaret River getaway from ADAMS Pinnacle Tours, and Alexis Davy was the winner.
