GALLERY: Letchworth calendar photo competition winners announced
THE Comet can reveal today (Thursday) the winning photos which will fill a town’s 2012 calendar.
Amateur photographic competition Picture This, organised by the Letchworth Garden City Tourist Information Centre in association with The Comet, was set up to find the best 13 photos of Letchworth GC.
A panel of judges picked out their favourite 12 snaps, with the 13th and final shot - Willian Pond by Jon Morris-Smith - making the cut after gaining 29 per cent of the vote from Comet readers.
“I’m absolutely delighted with the response we have had to our amateur photographic competition,” said Heather McLaughlin, tourist information centre manager.
“We’ve had a superb selection of landscapes, buildings and photos capturing what Letchworth means to the people who live, work and play here. Thank you to everyone who entered and to the readers of The Comet for helping to select our final winning photograph.”
