Photography Competition 2018

Vote for your favourite photograph to become the overall winner of our annual wildlife photography competition.

The results are in and our panel of judges have chosen a winner from each category, but now it’s up to you to choose the overall competition winner! The quality and variety of images submitted to the competition this year has been fantastic, it has really shown how spectacularly diverse our county is!

The image that receives the most votes will be crowned the overall winner and will receive a £200 prize. Voting closes at the end of January and the overall winner will be announced shortly after. Thank you to everyone that entered.

The competition is kindly sponsored by ACL Essex (Adult Community Learning) the largest provider of adult learning courses in Essex.
