Bendigo artist Simon Penrose has taken out the People's Choice award in this year's Victorian Indigenous Art Awards.

The Californian Gully photographer adds the $2500 prize to his $5000 award in the Works on Paper section.

His photograph "Eyes are the Windows to the Soul is a portrait of a child looking confrontingly at the camera.

Simon, 25, works in the Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-Op. 

He says his photographic work is a hobby, but he has already had his first exhibition and now two awards to his credit.
