“We enjoyed great success on the opening night with both sides of THE MUSE fully packed,Drinks were enjoyed and the calibre of work was absolutely breathtaking, Combine this with the great food & atmosphere (not to mention the grand piano) and one would easily come to the conclusion that the night was a smashing success.
After 4 long years (give or take a few depending on each students background) of study everyone came together and produced something amazing.
After so much hard time and preperation the final year students a few days earlier had their portfolios evaluated by some of the industries best and brightest, including: Moshe Rosenzveig, Penelope Beveridge & Robert Cameriere
From their evaluations combined with those of the great photographers who taught us, they came up with results that would not only determine an academic outcome but also effectivly judge who would win a number of prizes for their achievments on the evening
Those prizes were awarded for:
Best portfolio Stephanie Georgia Jury
With prizes supplied courtesy of Adobe, Sun Studios & Canon Australia
Runner up best portfolio of the year Neck Ro
With prizes supplied courtesy of Adobe & Yaffa Publishing
Best Image Mariam Adra
With prizes supplied courtesy of AIPP
And a surprise consolation prize was issued by Peter Gillies who loved Melinda Cartmer’s body of work, awarding her with some free use of freedom studios
We as a group would love to thank everyone who showed up and all those who supported us, Including friends, teachers, families & sponsers alike.”
