M'boro photojournalist in running for world award

MARYBOROUGH woman Chloe Bartram has been short-listed in the prestigious Sony World Photography Awards for her works on child beauty pageants.

The photojournalist said she was excited to be one of three finalists in the Arts and Culture section.

"It is fantastic exposure for my work," she said.

She said her "Sparkle, baby" photographs were inspired by her curiosity about beauty pageantry in Australia.

"It was a way of understanding what it means for a girl growing up in Australia and what challenges she faces."

The winners will be announced in London on April 30.
