Event-packed Busselton Show

THE Busselton Show has wrapped up for another year with this year’s event proving as popular as ever despite the poor weather on Saturday.

Friday saw fireworks and sideshow alley open in the evening, following a day of judging and competition in the pavilions and on the centre oval.

The photography competition introduced the inaugural Peter Watson Trophy, which commemorates local photographer Jean Clayton who passed away in 2002.

Taking up the hobby late in life, Jean was a very keen photographer, becoming involved with the local camera club for many years and was often rewarded for her excellent work, winning competitions on both a state and national level. 

Jean succumbed to cancer in early 2002. 

Jean’s daughter, Carol Williams, initiated the trophy in memory of her late mother, to award photographs of native Western Australian orchids, one of Jeans favourite subjects, at the Busselton Show.

It is called the Peter Watson Trophy and will be valid for a period of 10 years. 

This year’s winner was Glenda Nikolic with a stunning image of a zebra orchid.
