Two outstanding winners were crowned in our third annual photography competition, with the theme of 'My Heritage, My Norwich,' and they took centre stage in a public exhibition touring several Norfolk venues in Spring 2011.
Alan Bennett, won the 25s and over category with his photo 'St Bartholomew Church Ruins', taken of St Bartholomew Church Ruins, off Heigham Street. The judges commented: "This photograph is well thought-out and really seems to reveal secret Norwich. It is beautifully framed under superb conditions, which means it captures an ethereal and moody quality. It is a very personal image, with the photographer seemingly on location on his own, engaging with the architecture."
Maisie East won the under 25s category with her photo 'Out of Time', taken of the Out of Time record shop on Magdalen Street. The judges commented: "This image has a timeless quality to it, which will relate to a lot of people. It tells a story, showing urban decay in an often forgotten street in Norwich. It is an interesting twist on a 19th century-style portrait of a shopkeeper. The title goes so well with the image as time has seemingly left no mark on it."
Runner-ups were also selected: in the 25s and over category: Amy Wragg, Julia Cameron, Kerry Heaney and Tom Oldfield; and in the under 25s category and Isobel Bailey.
