Examiner snappers win top awards

TWO Daily Examiner photographers have won honours in this year’s International Aperture Awards.

Full-time photographer Adam Hourigan won two silver and three bronze awards with his wedding and sports images.

“The competition was judged by well-known international photographers, so to be placed amongst these people in the competition is great,” he said.

Examiner part-time photographer Brendan Ray took out four awards in the competition with his range of glamour, news and landscape photography.

He said he had no expectations when he entered and was shocked that all of them gained a place.

“It’s judged by the best photographers in the world who are also my peers,” he said.
