Our most successful photo competition to date has brought us nearly 600 images to look through, something we have all thoroughly enjoyed, and although it has been a very hard task we have now short listed each category down to the finalists. Over the leading weeks up to Christmas we will be showing off all the category short listed entries on the blog, with the winners, runners-up and overall competition winner to be announced early next year. So, with all that in mind, why not start with the category which brought us the overall winner for 2011... The "Junior" category.
This year the Junior category really caught the judges eyes, although still the least entered category, the standard certainly topped what was on offer last year and shows us that there are some really promising budding photographers out there!
