The March photo competition closed on Saturday night, attracting a record 438 entries. The repetition-themed competition was judged by Marc Gafen, editor of professional photography magazine, Capture.

Gafen selected the image “Up the Wall” by Rachel Corsini as the overall winner, praising the image for its simple but powerful execution.

"The image unambiguously and boldly represented the theme," he commented. “Repetition was highlighted by the strong composition and effective use of black and white.

"The subject matter leaves the viewer with a number of questions as to what exactly has been photographed. One interpretation is that it’s a sci-fi landscape that stretches on indefinitely into the great white void.

"The leading lines and repetition on the left and right hand sides of the composition also helped make this image stand out from the others in an otherwise tight competition."

Rachel Corsini has won a Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW camera bag valued at $219 courtesy of Lowepro and Maxwell International.

Twenty images (pictured below) were shortlisted for final judging: 'All Aboard,' by Deb Cochrane; 'Architectural Repetition,' by Niki Whitfield-Hart; 'Blue On Blue On Blue,' by Andrew Fuller; 'Complimentary,' by Andrew Fuller; 'Crossing Bridge,' by Budiman; 'De Pazzi's Chapel,' by Carlo Oggioni; 'Down the Drain,' by Christopher Ojala; 'Leaf Life,' by Janet Storer; 'Looking Down,' by Malcolm Katon; 'Looking Up,' by Margaret Lowe; 'Natural Repetition,' by Niki Whitfield-Hart; 'Old Communication,' by Michael Falkiners; 'Repetition,' by Kerstin Siegmund; 'Repetition,' by Stan Paczkowski; 'Round and Round,' by Rebecca Ng; 'Shirts,' by Richard Edwards; 'Shutters,' by Matt Mawson; 'Smoke Repetition (Mirror),' by Louay Henry; 'Up The Wall,' by Rachel Corsini; and 'Wall of Shutters,' by Judith Garman.
