Local professional photographer Paul Wilkinson highlighted the prize winning images and provided helpful feedback in a highly engaging and entertaining manner.

Commenting on the continuing high standard of the entries and reflecting on the sheer joy that photography can bring, Paul gave generous encouragement to entrants and parents alike, a stimulating and insightful commentary on layout and format, and useful tips for improving techniques for future competition entries. His enthusiasm in encouraging youngsters to engage in photography was clear for all to see.
