The ‘Love Maidenhead’ photography competition, part of the Maidenhead festival, produced some stunning photos this year, showcasing the best of what the town has to offer.
Another great year for the photography competition, which showcased the huge pool of photography talent right here in Maidenhead. Photographers were challenged to showcase Maidenhead in all it’s glory and they certainly delivered. Have a scroll through the winners and see if you agree with the judges!
This is one of our favourites, although not a winner, this is a great shot with the water creating an illusion of a reflection in the tunnel.
The three pictures above are the three winners of this year’s competition in their respective categories.
Maidenhead Festival chairman Lisa Hunter said, “We wanted to showcase just how amazing Maidenhead is…and we haven’t been disappointed with the entries, receiving more than in any previous year. It’s made judging them all very difficult.”
The role of head judge went to Jodie Humphries, a Maidenhead blogger and photographer, who is regularly seen taking snaps of the town and surrounding area.
“Wow, simply wow. The photographs entered into this year’s Maidenhead Festival photo competition have been fantastic…I was really chuffed to see that in all three categories we have seen photos from all seasons and all weathers, proof that Maidonians are out and about and appreciating their surroundings throughout the year, not just for a summertime photo competition.”
This stunning picture in the under 16 category of an ominous red sunset reminiscent of the Sahara placed in just third place, which goes to show the impressive talent in the competition this year.
There was much to play for this year, with the winner of the professional category recieving a £500 Seiko watch and the winner of the device category winning a meal for two at The Crown in Bray!
