The winners and runners-up in Newhaven Town Council’s 2018 Best of Newhaven Photographic Competition received their prizes from the Mayor, Councillor Paul Boswell, at a prizegiving at Meeching Hall this week.

The overall winner was Martin Sinnock with this gorgeous photo above of the sunset over Newhaven Fort.

This is the 3rd year the competition has been held and it was more popular than ever, with 32 people entering and submitting a total of 101 photos between them. There were 10 categories and people could enter any or all of the categories, but could only submit one photo for each category. The judging panel were not allowed to know who had submitted any of the photos.

The overall winning photograph won £100; the category winning photographs won £40 and the runner up photographs in each category won £20. Several people won more than one prize.

The money for the prizes was kindly provided by sponsors:

Arrow Tyres
Meeching Estate Agents
Newhaven Chamber of Commerce
Newhaven Enterprise Centre
Fludes Carpets
Ingenio Technologies
La Baguette
Susmans Beef Biltong
Tasker Osman
Wave Leisure

The winning and runner up photos will appear on banners on Riverside in October.

All the photos submitted for the competition will also be on display at Newhaven Library from next Monday, the 17th of September, for a couple of weeks.
