The overall winner of the Dane Valley Woods photo of 2019 competition has been announced.
The steering group for the project had a theme of “Focus on the Seasons” throughout the year and picked one winner per season from pictures submitted by residents.
Of the final four a public vote resulted in:
Winter (14.6%) Sinead Le Blond
Spring (28.1%) Aiden James (AJ) Vagnarelli-Thoroughgood
Summer (18.8%) Bob Ward
Autumn (38.5%) Frank Leppard
A spokesman for the Dane Valley Woods committee said: “Congratulations to Frank Leppard, who is crowned our overall winner with his amazing autumnal sunset picture! Also a special mention to our runner up AJ, who was a mere nine years old when he took his fantastic spring blossom snap – a budding future photographer in the making!
A massive thumbs up to our other two finalists, Bob and Sinead, and thank you once again to everyone who submitted their photos.
“It really has been great to see how everyone rose to the challenge, and showcased the natural beauty that can be found in Dane Valley Woods.”
