Carefree photo gets judges jumpin' and captures prize

TALENTED photographers from across the region have sent us photographs depicting what summmer means to them.

There can only be one winner however, and the 2017 winner of The Northern Star's I am Summer competition has been chosen.

The winning photograph Everybody was Jumpin' Jumpin', was taken by Bridie Schmidt of South Golden Beach.

Bridie wins a feature-packed Nikon Key Mission 170 camera, worth $579.

Her image of boys on a bridge at Brunswick Heads evokes memories of long summer holidays spent at the beach - long hot summer days spent with friends, where time just disappeared.

The image captures the carefree essence of youth - a moment frozen in time.

The entries received reflected the diversity of life on the Northern Rivers.

Keep snapping.
