Results of the 2023 Addingham Environment & Civic Society Photo Competition

The competition this year drew a smaller number of entries than previously although a high standard was maintained.

There were five categories listed below with the first, second and third place prize winners, their images and the judges officiating, drawn from members of Ilkley Camera Club together with our very own Jim Robinson.

MorecambeJohn Fontana, as curator of the competition, undertook the responsibility of choosing the overall competition winner, and that is Anne Clarke with ‘Morecambe’

John commented:

‘Morecambe, well I suppose it could be anywhere really, don't want to upset the good folk of the town. However apart from being humorous, it would also fit into a street photography category. I like the arrangement of three linked subjects, the pub sign, the two, maybe inebriated, gentlemen, and the empty wine bottle. It really tells a story to the viewer. For me, as a photograph, it just falls down by the top cutting through the "pub" sign. But again, well done to the photographer’.

I would add that I loved the three elements of the pub sign, the beer bottle and the two sleeping men following a wonderful curve in their slumped position.

Well done!

Thanks to the judges and to all of those who contributed.
