THE Fraser Coast Chronicle's chief photographer Alistair Brightman has been named a finalist in the Photography of the Year Award for the 2015 PANPA Newspaper of the Year Awards.

Alistair was able to land a spot on the finalists' list with a moment he captured earlier in 2015 of Lance Corporal Ben McDonald reflecting on his wartime experience while aboard the 2015 Anzac Troop Train Re-Enactment.

It's not the first time the news photographer of 30 years has been nominated for a PANPA award, which he won in 2013.

The winners will be announced at the Newspaper of the Year Awards Gala Dinner in Sydney in September.
