We would also like to thank Dimbola for offering the winning photographer an exhibition in the Charles Hay Cameron Gallery at Dimbola later in 2014 during the Autumn Season. This is a great opportunity for the winning photographer and they will be working in close consultation with the Exhibitions and Collections Coordinator (E&CC), at Dimbola, to ensure this exhibition’s success.
