Light Works for local photographer

The winner of Donaghadee’s December photography competition was Olivia Rose with her photograph of the town’s shorefront at night.  Olivia is pictured here receiving a £50 voucher for the Bull & Claw Restaurant from guest judge Samuel Parkinson of Blue Dot Antiques.

Speaking after the presentation Olivia said “I wanted a photograph which included the Christmas lighting and thought that the view from the beach at Lemon’s Wharf would not only capture the lighting but also show the shorefront from an angle not usually seen”

Samuel Parkinson, said “Yet again there was very strong competition and the judging panel had no easy task choosing the winner.   We thought Olivia’s capturing of the wintry sky with the Christmas lights reflecting off the sea was superb.  Well done Olivia.”

The competition is organised by the Donaghadee Community Development Association.  The Association, a charity based in Donaghadee, intends to produce a “Shop Local” calendar for 2022.  Each month the judges will choose an image which best captures something about Donaghadee in that month, whether a landscape, community festival or seasonal event etc and the winning photographer is presented with £50 voucher for a meal in a restaurant in Donaghadee.  The calendar will be composed of the 12 winning entries and the image judged champion of champions will feature on the calendar cover.

Chairman of the Association, Gary McNinch said “Donaghadee offers fantastic settings for photographs – we have terrific sunrises, our iconic harbour and shorefront and many areas more inland offering up ideal opportunities.  We will launch the calendar in time for the Christmas market and expect a high demand.”
