(Lee & Kylie donated their prizes back to FSW - Many thanks Lee and Kylie:-)

We were delighted to be able to hold our Open Day this year and there was lots of activity at the Photo Competition stand. An unprecedented number of photographs had been sent in this year with 26 people entering, many sending all six permitted photos. It was thus necessary to draw up a shortlist. This comprised 50 photographs which were shown at Open Day with all visitors invited to vote for their three favourites. 128 people voted - most saying how hard it was to choose amongst 50 such superb photographs. Voting was close but by the end of the day we had a first, second and third - shown to the right.
Congratulations to all our winners!!!
The winners and all other shortlisted entries are shown in a gallery below. 

Also see further down the page for winning and shortlisted photographs from past years (competitions have been held since 2010).

A big thank you to everyone who entered and all those who voted.
