Yvonne Welch's completed entry form for the Kodak Employees' Photographic Competition, 1966.

Yvonne entered four slides into the competition: 'Tooranong Reservoir', 'Reflection', ' Filtration' and 'Trixie'. 'Trixie' won first prize in the amateur category. Yvonne was awarded $14.00 and a medallion.

The competition was open to all Kodak Australasia employees from all over the country, including both active and retired employees. This form outlines the rules, conditions and prizes for this photo competition which supported and actively encouraged staff in their private pursuit of photography as a hobby. Many Kodak employees were passionate photographers.

Yvonne Welch (later Cameron) not only worked in the canteen and staff shop at Coburg from 1964 to 1975, she was an active member of the Kodak Camera Club. She also lived in a street behind the factory and watched as the factory was constructed in the late 1950s, she saw through its various phases of development and then she witnessed its final closure and demolition from 2004 - 2011.

This document was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
