The Landguard Partnership at Felixstowe in Suffolk is proud to announce the twelve winning photographs in this year’s Landguard Photography Competition 2017.

The overall “Judges Choice” Winner is Philip J Hill, whose picture taken on the Landguard Nature Reserve, wins a cash prize of £50 to put towards photographic equipment.

Philip’s photograph (attached with this press release) was in the Wildlife Category.

You can view all the winning photos at the online Winners Gallery.

This year’s competition attracted 68 entries over the three categories: Macro, Wildlife and Photographs at Landguard that make you go ‘Wow’! An online vote was then held on the Discover Landguard website. A record-number of over 1,500 votes were cast, and from this the top four photographs in each category were selected. A panel of judges then met yesterday (Tuesday 3 October) to select the overall “Judges Choice” winner.

A special presentation evening for the twelve winners will be held at Felixstowe Town Hall in early November, where the Mayor of Felixstowe, Nick Barber will present each winner with an enlarged print of their photograph.

Stephen Rampley, Landguard Marketing and Events Co-ordinator said:

“Once again, this year’s competition has attracted a fabulous variety of photographs which capture the unique attractions and atmosphere of the Landguard Peninsula.

We would like to congratulate Philip on his winning entry, and thank everyone who took the time to enter their great photographs."
