Wildlife Photography Competition Results 2021

We had a great Photographic Competition on 3 October, with 50 entries from children to adults.
Our judges were both local artists. Ted has a couple of Art Degrees and has run Art Galleries in London and Bath, Roz is a local artist and is training as an Art Therapist.
We held the Competition in Holy Trinity Church, Combe Down to correspond with the Harvest Services. The church was full of flowers and produce for Harvest which beautifully complemented the photos of wildlife seen locally during the pandemic.

There was a great sense of fun, warmth, and anticipation as we munched cakes and waited for the judges’ decisions, then there was clapping, shock, and joy as the prizes were announced.
