See foot of the page for competition details

Judge's Comments:

Courier Picture desk co-ordinator Gary Francis "was impressed once again by the standard and variety of this yearís competition entries. It is good to see some experimental work as well as the nicely composed shots of various locations around the village. Keen photographers are capturing more and more images that reflect village life in Rusthall, as well as the well-known landmarks. Some of the natural photos, toads, insects, pets etc. were of a very good standard and once again it was difficult to single out those winning images which depicted Rusthall at its best.

"First prize in the adult category goes to Angelo Gifford with this shot of a figure in silhouette in front of the annual bonfire, a rather dramatic image.Ē

OVERALL WINNER
Prize: £50

Photo Competition

The Fire Manager, Fireworks 2016
by Angelo Gifford


First runner up in the adult category

"First Frost by Sue White is a runner up in the adult section. The image has been cropped and isnít the standard 4 x 3 format that comes straight from the camera. It is an interesting weather picture and the line of trees draws the viewer into the image."

RUNNER UP
Prize: Meal for two at the Toad Rock Retreat

Photo Competition

First Frost at Southwood Road
by Sue White


"Another runner up in the adultís class is this stunning image of Bluebells taken by Michala Starkey. It is made more interesting by the young child, clearly determined to build something out of dead wood. The figure is nicely framed within the picture by the pile of wood and by the trees around the bluebells."

RUNNER UP
Prize: Meal for two at the Daily Bread

Photo Competition

Camp Bluebell by Michala Starkey


"Happy Valley Tree by Sue Peters is a well composed image full of symmetry and is my final choice of runner up in the adult classes."

RUNNER UP
Prize: Two tickets for the Rusthall Community Cinema

Photo Competition

Happy Valley Tree by Sue Peters


Sixteen and Under

In the under sixteens section my choice is as follows:

"First prize goes to Amber Powney with Echoes of the Unknown, which caught my eye as it is rather a sinister image with lots of silhouette effects despite being taken in bright daylight."

WINNER UNDER 16s
Prize: £40 cash

Photo Competition

Echoes of the Unknown by Amber Powney (age 16)
Taken March 2017 in Grange Road woods


"The runner up in the under sixteens is Sand Park by eleven year old Hannah Cogan. Eye catching because it is unusual and makes the viewer think about the content."

RUNNER UP UNDER 16s
Prize: Book token

Photo Competition

Rusthall Sand Park by Hannah Cogan age 11

"Congratulations to the winners and everybody who took part. Rusthall should be proud of its keen and talented photographers."

Rusthall Photographic Competition

WHAT IS IT?

A photographic competition entitled 'Rusthall: A Picture Tells All' which is being run by the Rusthall Village Association and is intended to be an opportunity for people to send in up to 5 images of what Rusthall means to them, today. There is no restriction as to what or where the photographs are taken (all pictures will be vetted prior to publication for common decency and appropriateness for an all-age audience). They can be of people, places, animals, buildings, landscapes, wildlife, events etc.


WHO CAN ENTER?

Anyone can enter the competition. The only rules are that the photos must have been taken in or of Rusthall, and they must have been taken within the past year. There are two categories:
1) for 16 year olds and under
2) over 16 year olds


HOW CAN I ENTER THE COMPETITION?

Simply send in your photograph to our website manager Nigel Suckling nigel.R.suckling@gmail.com with your name, contact number, email, age (if under 16) and where and when the photograph was taken.
Alternatively you can post a print with all your details to Alex Britcher at 1 Manor Road which runs beside the first One Stop in Rusthall High Street.


WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY PHOTOGRAPH?

The photographs will be displayed here on the website showing the name of the entrant, where the photo was taken and, if less than 16, the age of the entrant. A copy of the photographs will then be held on file at Rusthall Library as an historical document


HOW LONG DOES THE COMPETITION RUN FOR?

The competition will run from June - 11th September 2017


WILL THERE BE WINNERS AND WHO DOES THE JUDGING?

Yes, there will be 1 winner and 3 runners up from each of the two categories. The photographic editor from the Courier will be judging the competition


WHAT HAPPENS IF I WIN AND HOW WILL I KNOW?

Winners will have their pictures printed in the Kent and Sussex Courier and will also win a prize - £50 for the winner of the adult category, a meal for two at the Toad Rock Retreat for first runner-up and other prizes still to be decided; £40 cash for the 16 and under winner and book tokens for runners-up. Winners will be contacted via telephone or email and a prize-giving ceremony will be held at the Rusthall Village Association meeting on Wednesday 20th September 2017
