Congratulations to the winners of our Autumn Photography Competition

This is the second year we have run a photography competition and once again, have been delighted and impressed by the images sent to us from local amateur photographers. The theme was Sussex People, Places & Pastimes and it has been interesting to see how the entrants interpreted this, with some inspired takes on Sussex stories.

The overall winner in the adult category was Clive Trusler for his wonderful portrait of a Horsham Morris Dancer. We loved this portrait for its quality, sharpness, and the story it told of the tradition of Morris dancing in Sussex.



Second prize went to Mist on the Downs by Steve Yates, which we felt beautifully captured a moment in time over an iconic Sussex landmark.



An image of Shoreham Power Station by Andrew Devon took third prize. We thought this photograph was interesting for telling the story of the power station and the protests it caused before it was built. In view of this, we loved how the heart-shaped sun was captured in the steam and clouds, along with the sharpness of the shot.



In the junior category, the winner was Maisie Russon for her glorious colourful photograph of paragliders up at Devil’s Dyke. Again, we loved the story telling in this shot of an iconic Sussex landmark and pastime.



There were two runners up in the junior category. We felt Jared Thode’s wood carving was compelling and wonderfully composed, while Jayden Addison’s beautiful sunset of silhouetted trees and fiery reflections captured a stunning moment in time.



We would like to thank all those who entered the competition. We have all really enjoyed looking through the entries which were all of a high standard.
