Craven Museum Announce Amateur Photography Competition Winners

Earlier this year Craven Museum & Gallery, in association with The Craven Herald, launched an amateur photography competition. The brief was simple; show Craven at its best and the top 10 would be made into postcards to be sold through the museum gift shop.

Over 100 photographs were submitted with the subjects ranging from snow scenes to stepping stones and from scenic views to church pews. Catherine Johnson – Arts and Exhibitions Officer for Craven District Council and Steve Garnett award winning Herald photographer judged the entries and considered a range of factors including composition, technical ability, originality, interpretation of the brief and the commercial appeal of the photographs.

Under 18’s Emily Richardson, Skipton – Sunset over Skipton Middle Town
