Photography competition winners announced

Howden Rotary Club has announced the winners of its recent photography competition… Rebecca Andrews won the 13 to 19 years age group and Jackie Halliday emerged victorious in the adult category.

Each of the winners received a prize of £20 to donate to the charity of their choice.

Rebecca, who only turned 13 in May and attends Howden Senior school, took her winning photograph on a family walk in Gilberdyke during lockdown. The talented teenager chose to donate her prize money to Mission Trinity in Goole.

Jackie, who captured her winning image (below) on a walk at a local nature reserve, opted to give her prize to homeless charity Shelter, explaining: “It always upset me when I was passing through the car park in York near the river, on seeing someone so young living rough and on his own.”

Two runners-up – Leah Coates (13) and Graham Garrett – were each awarded £10 for their chosen charities.

Howden Rotary Club President Ray Guthrie said: “On behalf of the members and committee of Howden Rotary Club, I would like to thank all the photographers who entered photographs in our competition; the standard of the entries was excellent.

I’d also like to say a huge thank you to Ken Duck, who had the extremely difficult task of judging the competition. Ken has been a local photographer for many years and is a member of Howden Camera Club. Although he is now retired, he was a qualified member of the British Institute of Professional Photography, so we are most grateful to him for his time and expertise.”
