Message from Chris Spybey :-
We are pleased to be able to announce the winners of our Amateur Photograph Competition at last. We were intending to have the final judging during the recent Summer Bazaar. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond their control, two sets of invited guest judges were unable to attend. There were a lot of photographs entered into the competition, especially in the Domestic Pets section, so for the final Sue and I whittled it down to 12 finalists in the Domestic Pets section and 10 in the Wildlife section. (see below)
Dagmar Genth kindly judged these and decided on the two winning photographs.
