SIMON SNAPS A WINNER
October 14 2014.
The results of the Tour of Britain Photographic Competition held by Newhaven Town Council have just been announced – and the winner is Newhaven resident Simon Hepworth. “Highly Commended” awards have also been announced for runners up Ivan Tallboys and David Astell.
The panel of judges – Norman Baker MP, local artist Carol Havard and Rod Lambert of Mr Cycles, Seaford – found it a difficult job to choose the winner as the standard of photos submitted for the competition was so high. They assessed the photos on composition, how instantly recognisable as Newhaven the location was and on the interest of the image. Simon’s wonderful picture of cyclists, motorcyclists and accompanying vehicles crossing the swing bridge scored highly in all three categories.
Simon will receive a £50 voucher kindly donated by Mr Cycles, the cycling shop in Clinton Place (opposite the Railway Station) in Seaford.
The competition was open to adults and children, local residents and visitors to the town and was for the best photograph taken in Newhaven on the day of the Tour of Britain – Saturday 13th September 2014.
