Photography Competition 2017

Welcome to Southwold Arts Festival Photography Competition 2017

The competition has now closed. Thank you for all your entries and we look forward to the competition next year. 

There were two age groups, under 16’s and 16 and over on the 1st January 2017. We had some great prizes and the winners were chosen by our panel of judges; [Stephen Wolfenden (photographer), Sarah Groves (content manager Adnams) and Mary Gundry (Suffolk artist)]. First prize in each group was a Fuji Instax instant camera.

The second placed person in each group received Viking 8x40 binoculars and the third placed person in each group, Pentax 8x21 compact binoculars.

The above prizes were being generously provided by Wells of Southwold.
