The winning photos have been chosen in this year’s Bracknell Forest photo competition. This year, we asked local amateur photographers to share how they’re staying safe and inspired.
There were 86 imaginative and inspiring photos submitted by 22 photographers to the competition. The competition is sponsored by the Economic Skills and Development Partnership, Duncan Yeardley Estate Agents and Bracknell Camera Club.
The top spot and winner of an £80 gift card for The Lexicon was Wendy Lamb from Bracknell. Her serene photo shown at the top of this page, shows her daughter Eleanor, out enjoying the beautiful surroundings in isolation at Frost Folly open space in Warfield.
Other prize-winning entries from talented residents included:
- an eye-catching and original image by Ruth Mason of natural arts and crafts at home
- a pertinent image by Andy Blair of face masks drying on his washing line
- a photo of an urban green space in Bracknell by Ray Hewitt
Twelve photos also received commendations.
The judging team were inspired looking through the photographic entries, which provided a fascinating snapshot of how residents are safely spending their time at home, and when they’re out for their daily exercise.
Cllr John Harrison, Executive Member for Culture, Delivery and Public Protection, said:
“Our thanks to everyone who took part in our competition, and to our judges and sponsors for their contributions.
“A special well done to our winning photographers for their excellent shots, which demonstrates how residents are staying safe and inspired during these difficult times.”
