“The Best of Dawlish ” photograph competition

The photographs were judged by international, award winning photographer Teri Pengelli who is based in London.

All photographs that were submitted before the deadline of 8 May 2017 were entered for the competition, but many of them were not large enough to be considered for the calendar. Because we did not have sufficient photographs of a useable size for every month/season, (that complied with the theme “The Best of Dawlish”) we had to look around for additional pictures. Our thanks therefore go out to Colin Marsden and Andy Aitchison for donating photographs that enabled us to produce the 2018 calendar.

The results of the photograph competition are below, prizes of £50 for the winner and £10 for commended in each category, will be awarded at the Grand Gala evening on Saturday 3 June, St Gregory’s Church from 7.30 pm.
