IT TOOK two rounds of judging, but the finalists in the council's Clarence Valley in Focus Photography Competition and Exhibition have been announced.

Mayor Richie Williamson said almost 100 entries were submitted for the competition's three categories.

"The Clarence Valley in Focus competition closed at the end of January and gave the judging panel of Adam Hourigan, Simon Hughes and Debra Novak quite a bit of work to do," Cr Williamson said.

"The judges said they were impressed with the range of photographs submitted, pointing to the fact that there was obvi- ously a great number of talented photographers across the Valley."

STUNNING: Clarence Valley in Focus mobile phone category winner was Katrina Wade’s Dirragun’s Touch.
