PHOTOGRAPHERS of the future gathered at Huntingdon library on Saturday to discover who would win the Huntingdon Hinchingbrooke Rotary Young Photographer competition.
Aged between six and 10 years old, the children were the finalists in a competition that had attracted high quality photographs from nine schools. They were asked to submit their best shots in any of four categories - people, places, animals and landscapes.
The entries were superb and gave the judges - Lynne Holden, past president of Hinchingbrooke Rotary, Ken Challenger, photographer and president of Cromwell Rotary, and Andy Veale, editor of The Hunts Post - a particularly tricky task.
However, they eventually came to a consensus and the winners were: Teigan Harbour (landscape), Elle Lamb (people), Sian Sweetman-Anderson (places), and Keziah Wheeler (animals).
