2016 Photo Competition

Thank you to everyone who entered this year’s Photographic competition. Finding a winner has been almost as difficult as finding an judge.

The two categories were:
Adults – Theme: Machars Colour – The Winnie Anderson Trophy
Junior (U18) – Theme: Animals and Livestock – The McGowan Trophy

And the winners are:

Wigtown Harbour - Rising Tide at Sundown2

Adult Section:

Title: Wigtown Harbour – Rising Tide at Sundown
Photographer: Lorraine Smith

Judges comments: This photograph contains an impressive colour spectrum.  Of particular merit is the reflection of the dramatic sky in the river and the distant light on the hills draws the viewer to the background.


Title: Wigtown Harbour
Photographer: Mrs Foster
Judges Comment: Vibrant colour captured reflecting the dramatic sky in the landscape.  A little too small to be the winner, but an excellent eye for landscapes.


Junior Section:

Title: My Dog
Photographer: Brad Rossi
