Discover Ashfield Photography Competition winners for 2020

The winners of the second Discover Ashfield Photography Competition have been announced this week.

The competition ran by Discover Ashfield with Ashfield District Council, aimed to find photographs that promote and increase awareness of Ashfield. This year the brief was to photograph our urban landscape, with a focus on the successful industry that is based in Ashfield. The images also had to represent one of the four strands of Discover Ashfield; Love Where You Live, More to Discover, Places to Enjoy and Succeed in Ashfield.

The four winners are:

Jiri Madlo with Morning Kirkby

Jayne Moore with Spring Serenity

David Curry with The Train Station

Jeanette Carter with Kirkby in Ashfield Men in Sheds

The four winners received a £100 High Street voucher and a trophy, which was presented to them outside the Council offices in Kirkby.

The Chairman of Discover Ashfield Board, Martin Rigley MBE, who was part of the judging panel, said “I am delighted to have the chance to judge the second Discover Ashfield Photography Competition. The change of brief meant that we got to see a different side to Ashfield, I was particularly pleased to see images that represent the manufacturing industry that is booming in Ashfield. The competition once again showed the best sides of the District.
“There were so many brilliant entries to choose from, it was a difficult decision for the judging panel, but the four winners really stood out. Their photographs are instantly recognisable as being in Ashfield.”
