THE WINNERS have been announced for Sewerby Hall and Gardens recent amateur photography competition which used the coast, sea and sky in the East Riding as its inspiration.

The winning photographs, one from each of the junior and senior categories, were chosen by a panel of judges at Sewerby Hall and Gardens – and a selection of the best entries are now on show in the Clock Tower Tea Rooms.

The winner of the senior category was Matthew Perks from Hornsea, with a picture entitled ‘Morning Contemplations’, taken on Hornsea beach.

The winning entry in the junior category was by Bailey Emmerson from Hull, aged 12, with a shot of the groynes and lighthouse at Spurn Point.

Both winners received a professionally printed copy of their photographs, supplied by Ben Walker of Gallerino Studios, along with a 2013-14 family season pass to Sewerby Hall and Gardens and a copy of the Adventurer’s Guide.

Marie Gascoigne, facility manager of Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said: “All the photographs were of a very high standard and it was certainly a difficult task picking the two winners.”
