Former Island Bay resident Michael Frank has won our summer photo contest with this picture of computer chairs on Owhiro Bay Beach.

His Lounge with a View picture earned him a $250 Fujifilm Instant Photo fun pack, including a Fuji Instax Mini instant camera.

It was a hotly contested race, and Mr Frank's photo won by the slimmest of margins - just one vote from Alan Raga's waterslide photo.

The vote was so close that we have decided to give Mr Raga a consolation prize of a double pass to the movies.

Third was Lizanne Bowers' picture of her husband and daughter in Hurunui.

The competition garnered a record number of entries and hits on our website. We'll be repeating the exercise shortly. Keep an eye out.
