Congratulations to Sarah-Jayne Eggins for her exquisite photo 'Serenity', which has taken out the Major Prize for Pix From The Stix 2020!

"I left home at 4.30 am and travelled to Salamander Bay, NSW in search of this tree. When I arrived it was still dark and it was quite an adventure trying to find the right tree. I started to feel a little disappointed when sunrise turned out to be very underwhelming and a sea mist began to roll in. I am glad that I stayed for a little bit longer and just took in the peacefulness of the place – hopefully I have managed to capture it in this photo."

We congratulate all the winners in all the categories. You can view them and all the entries on our website:

Pix from the Stix has been proudly supported over the years by local sponsors with 2019’s Major Prize being from Hello World Travel Gloucester and R&R Property. All other prizes and support for the event were provided by Gloucester Advocate, The Roundabout Inn, Barrington Hideaway, KE & LA Forbes, Gloucester Medico, Avon Valley Inn, Faulls Ridge Wines, Gloucester Tyre & Battery, Webbs Real Estate and Jacobs Building.

This year we have turned things around and offer support to our sponsors in return for the support they have given PIX in years past and hopefully in years to come, so we won’t be asking them to dig in their pockets but we will still be giving them a plug!
