A PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition aimed at youth living in the Strathbogie Shire was a roaring success when held last month.

The third annual Our Place, Our Lives exhibition, held at the Euroa Butter Factory from July 20-26, featured some of the region’s best photography with images of people, landscape, weather and more.

An opening night recently announced the winners of the nine categories, with the recipients aged from five to 25 years old.

Celebrity photographer Kristian Dowling was the guest speaker at the event and talked to the 80 people in attendance about his long career in the industry, working both overseas and in Australia.

Strathbogie Shire Council children and families coordinator Deb Ellis said there were many visitors to the exhibition this year.

“This is the third year the youth photography exhibition has run,” she said.
