Triple treat for Ritchie

The Community Newspaper Group photographer of 21 years also came third in the Best Portrait category and second in the prestigious WA Press Photographer of the Year prize.

�I always hope to do well when I enter these awards, but I was especially thrilled with second in the overall top award,� Ritchie said. �WA has some of the best photographers in Australia, so it�s really gratifying to be counted among them.�
