After painstaking deliberation by judges, the impressive winners of the Blue Owl’s Open Photography competition were chosen this week.
The winners’ work was on display at the opening night of the event in the Blue Owl gallery, where the Grantham Tennis Club (GTC) Members’ Art Exhibition was also taking place.
Jean Firth, president of GTC, previous winner and photographer Adrian Fretwell and Councillor Linda Wootten, Mayor of Grantham, judged the competition the day before opening night.
The winners in the Blue Owl under-18 category were: 1, Amy Higgins for ‘Brackets’; 2, Samuel Lawrance for ‘Diagonal, Diagonal’; and 3, Matthew Jagger for ‘Incoming Tide’.
Winners of the adult open category were: 1, Andrew Kitchen for ‘Rawhawk’; 2, Nick Wainwright for ‘Laura’; and 3, Steve Kilpin for ‘Sunrise Through Durdle Door’.
The winners of the adult category are all members of the very active Grantham Camera Club, which will soon be holding its regular meetings at the tennis centre.
All the competition photographs are on display in the gallery with numerous other images of interest.
The GTC Members’ Art Exhibition is also open with some impressive work on display.
All the work is hanging in the gallery of Blue Owl Art, where there are over 80 works of art on display.
Artwork is on sale. Blue Owl is open seven days a week at Grantham Tennis Centre. For more details go to www.blueowlart.co.uk
