Hundreds of entries were received for this year’s event, with the judges given the unenviable task of selecting the very best for awards.

Both junior and senior categories were open for entries, with extra prizes for wildlife, flowers, and editor’s choice categories.

The competition was run by the Hunts Post together with St Neots and District Camera Club, with the awards ceremony held at the Priory Centre.

Daniel Mansfield, editor of the Hunts Post, said: “We know how difficult it can be to capture a truly great photograph so to have seen so many on display at the weekend was remarkable. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter and well done to all of our winners.”
