Pro-loco Photography 2020 Results

Online voting is now closed and we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 competition.

This year saw a bumper entry of over 250 photographs. Our Shortlisting Committee managed to draw up a shortlist of 90 photographs. This is the biggest entry we have had since the competition's inception in 2010. During the voting period we received over 2,700 verified votes - again a bumper vote. The counting of votes took longer than anticipated and have been re-checked and verified. All entries did extremely well and voting at times was very close. We are so pleased to announce the winners. Hover your cursor over each picture to see what prize is awarded.

All winners have been notified.

We would like to thank our sponsors - Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills and the Heights of Abraham for their continued sponsorship of this competition.

We would like to thank all of the entrants who submitted photographs - each year we receive different photographs of our lovely village. We are sorry that we cannot award prizes to all of those who entered as you all deserve a prize for your photographs.

We very much hope that you will submit more photographs next year - the 2021 competition will open mid-late January - all details will be put on our website.

The gallery may take a few minutes to load.
