The judging has taken place and Fiona our local community nurse – our local champion has chosen the winners of the photo competition.
Please see her comments below. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who entered as they were all fantastic.
The next competition will be launched next week. Theme “Hobbies” – entries by 6th March.
Fiona says”There were so many fantastic photos it was tough to decide.”
Under 15 Year old – First – Charlie Taaffe – “Waiting for the sun to set on COVID” – You image has clear relevance to the competition theme and gives a sense of unity, which is needed to get us through these dark days.
Second – Afiya Doyle – “Frosty the little Christmas tree” – Your image seems very relevant to this time of year. Your comment expresses the hope of warmer future Christmases spent with family, to which we can all relate. A nice, unusual view of a Christmas tree, with attractive depth of field.
Third – Mia McGivern – “A time for reflection” – Your image is relevant to the theme and seems to have been taken during Lockdown 3 ie winter and uses local light and landmarks. You encourage us to reflect on what is really important.
First – V Lillis – “Highlighting the mighty oak” – I loved this photo for its soothing, calming atmosphere, which surely we all need these days. You have managed to capture something ethereal. Your comments echo our faith in the cycle of life.
Second – J Sheffield – “We have the whole world in our hands” – Quirky and original. You’ve interpreted the brief to show how we’ve had to adapt during the pandemic. The image reminds us of our ongoing responsibility to look after our world and each other.
Third – Grace Jones – “Light of the paws” – I love the innocence and joy in this image, reminding us to cherish the simple fundamentals of life. A lovely composition with the dog meeting our gaze.
