Shrewsbury in Bloom Photo Competition Winners
The Shrewsbury in Bloom Group has announced the winners of this year’s Bloom Portfolio photo competition.
The front cover winner is no stranger to winning the Bloom photo competition, having featured on the front and back cover for the 2017 edition. Lee Roberts said: “It’s amazing and I’m really chuffed to have won.
“Photography is a passion for me and I try to take iconic photos of the town that I love. It’s also great that one of my photos has been chosen for the front cover of the Shrewsbury in Bloom Portfolio again. The flowers in the town are fantastic and make a wonderful addition to the historic buildings we see around us.”
Liam Ball takes the honours for the back cover of the Bloom Portfolio with his photo of a sunset over Kingsland Bridge last September. On his win, he said: “The Kingsland Bridge is an ideal vantage point for observing sunsets in Shrewsbury and on this particular evening, I could see the sky changing rapidly so I grabbed my camera and took the photo. It was great timing that the rowers came through at that moment.
“This photo is one of my favourites of the town and I think it captures Shrewsbury really well.”
Keith Roberts, chairman of the Shrewsbury in Bloom Group, said: “Once again this year we had a great response to our photo competition and it was a difficult task for the judges to pick the winning entries.
“These photos capture the unique aspects of the town that we probably all take for granted.
“I would like to thank everyone who entered the competition and we’ll be looking for entries for the 2023 Shrewsbury in Bloom Portfolio from the start of next month. I would advise people to ‘get snapping’ throughout the course of the next twelve months and send their entries through to Shrewsbury Town Council.”
All photo entries should be high resolution and ideally in portrait format and be sent through to firstname.lastname@example.org
