BONDI SNAPPER SNAPS UP PRIZE
Sydney newspaper photographer Rohan Kelly has taken out one of the world’s top photography prizes with a snap of Bondi.
Kelly, who works for the Daily Telegraph, has been awarded first prize in the “Nature” section of the prestigious World Press Foundation competition. His winning photo showed storm clouds gathering over Bondi Beach.
In fact it showed a southerly front about to hit the beach, and a chap in the foreground looking at his mobile phone, oblivious to the threat of the coming storm.
Kelly was in fact at the beach to cover the Bondi Short Film Festival, and admits he was lucky to be the right snapper at the right place at the right time. He is being flown to Holland to collect his award.
