Congratulations to Jenny Shaw on winning four awards and a commendation for the Abrolhos PhotoVoice project and the ‘Seeing Change’ exhibition. The PhotoVoice project showcases a fishing community’s experience of environmental and social change as seen through the lens of a camera. This project highlights the issues affecting the Abrolhos Islands, the rock lobster fishing industry and the islands’ communities over the last five to ten years. It was a successful collaboration between the Western Australian Marine Science Institution, Curtin University, WA Department of Fisheries, Coastwest, the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council, the WA Museum, ABC Open, and of course, the Abrolhos Islands fishing community.
