Awards to winners of the Haddenham and District Rotary 'Young Photographer Competition 2020' were presented at a ceremony on Monday 19th October — for the first time conducted by Zoom online due to Covid restrictions.

The theme for this year's competition was "Shadows"

Local professional and award winning photographer Paul Wilkinson presented the prizes and provided helpful and often amusing feedback.

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 composition and format, and useful tips for improving technique for future competition entries

Haddenham Rotary Club extend their grateful thanks to the parents and guardians of the young photographers for their encouragement and support

Congratulations to the prize winners — some wonderfully creative talent emerging.
