The winners of the second East Suffolk Photo Competition have been announced by Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils.

The five-week long competition, which ran during August and early September, invited amateur and professional photographers to submit their photos to the Councils under four categories; living in East Suffolk, working in East Suffolk, explore East Suffolk and under 16s.

In November, the entries were judged by Cllr TJ Haworth-Culf, Cabinet Member for Customers, Communities and Leisure at Suffolk Coastal and Cllr Michael Ladd, Cabinet Member for Tourism and Economic Development at Waveney District Council.

In a joint statement, Cllr Haworth-Culf and Cllr Ladd said: “We were once again overwhelmed by the amount and the quality of the entries, which all highlight the beauty of East Suffolk. It was incredibly difficult to choose between them all however we feel that the chosen winners really captured the spirit of the area.

“We would like to thank everyone who took part and we look forward to running the competition again in future.”

The winners are:


  • Winner: Elaine Holmes, Sizewell
