The winner of the People's Choice Award, a cash prize of $150, is Courage (Oil) by Amberley Bradley from Kalamunda Senior High School.
My work depicts two firefighters, Tim Vass and Tracey Ferguson, who fought in the Waroona and Yarloop bushfires. They both risked their lives to benefit others and this has stayed with me since they told me their story. They were fighting the fire when it reached their property and were faced with the decision to save their own home or their neighbours'. As a result, they saved one and watched their own burn down.
