The Explore Gloucestershire at its Best Photography Competition has always been very popular with hundreds of enthusiastic photographers of all ages in the county.
To enter, photographers submit photographs that capture the true essence of Gloucestershire. The subjects of the photographs can range from a scenic landscape, classic Cotswold architecture, or a scene of a popular county festival.
The winner of the 2012 competition, Phill Emery, submitted his winning photo of an atmospheric night scene of the Gloucester Docks.
On Thursday 11th April 2013, Phill met with the competition sponsors, Stagecoach West at Gloucester Docks to receive his prize. The Bigger Printing Company had reproduced Phill’s photograph as a large format canvas print, and Sebastian Stanley from Bigger Printing was present with Nathan Griffith-Williams, Marketing Manager of Stagecoach West for the presentation.
For this year’s competition, there will be additional prizes for the best photograph for each season, as well as an overall winner for the year. The overall winner will receive £250 and a large format canvas print.
