Twelve winning entries selected for 2019 Snowdonia calendar
The winners of the Snowdonia Society’s 2018 Photography Competition will see their shots of Snowdonia published in a calendar for next year.
After initial filtering, the final images were selected by competition judge Natasha Brooks, award-winning local photographer and film maker.
Out of the twelve winners that made it through, first, second and third prizes were awarded for capturing the essence of Snowdonia in their photos. First prize was awarded to Gareth Owen for his star and snow-filled shot of the pinnacles of Crib Goch (pictured left); second prize to Luke Wilson for his pink sunrise on Idwal slabs; and third prize to Gareth Jones for his close-up shot of a migratory whinchat.
Snowdonia Society Director John Harold said: “We were delighted by the diversity of the entries we received. There were lots of stunning pictures of the mountains, of course, but alongside them were images which focused on many other aspects of the area.”
He added: “The winning images reflect some of the beauty and special qualities of Snowdonia that we’re passionate about protecting. We’re looking forward to seeing them in the calendar which will go on sale in the coming weeks to raise money towards our continued work in Snowdonia.”
