#SnapSeaton Photography Competition Winners Announced
The winners of the #SnapSeaton photography competition have been announced. Visit Seaton, an initiative by Seaton Town Council in Devon, ran the competition throughout April and May to encourage visitors and locals to post photos of Seaton on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The photography competition received nearly 200 entries across the social media platforms.
The judging panel included Devon Life editor Andy Cooper, local photographer Richard Austin, Seaton Town Mayor Peter Burrows, Events Officers Juliette Williams and Michelle Oldfield Admin Assistant both from Seaton Town Council.
The winning image of a fishing boat at Axmouth Harbour was taken by Martin Lamb from St. Neots, Cambridgeshire. Martin, an amateur photographer, his wife and two girls have enjoyed five self-catering holidays in Seaton since 2010.
“We love Seaton’s beach, it’s quiet town, the scenery and the location being close to other attractions and places to visit. The photo was taken on a late August early-afternoon after a spot of crabbing at Axmouth harbour and a dip at the beach where the river meets the sea.”
Highly commended was awarded to Alex Moorehead from Beer with his beautiful sunset; Mark Herrick from Ilminster who captured a ‘Lady and her dog’ and a pink and orange sunrise by Polly Elizabeth from Seaton.
The winners will receive their image on a canvas print and the four photos will be made into post cards and available in Seaton during the summer.
