The winners of the 2016 Hunts Post Photo Competition were crowned at an exhibition and prize-giving ceremony held on Saturday.
Short-listed entrants, supporters and members of the public gathered at the Priory Centre, in St Neots, to view the hundreds of entries from across Huntingdonshire received as part of the competition, which was run in conjunction with St Neots Photographic Club.
The competition featured a variety of categories for photographers to submit their best shots, including wildlife, landscape, and open. There were also three junior categories and a special category run by Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
Stefan Bartlett, editor of The Hunts Post, attended the event and was on hand to crown the winner of the editor’s choice award.
He said: “The response to our annual photographic competition has been incredible with many hundreds of pictures received. It was particularly pleasing to see so many entrants from young photographers. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter.

“The standard overall was very high as the exhibition on Saturday demonstrated, so the winners can rightly feel proud of their achievement. Well done to them.
“I would also like to thank everyone who helped organise the competition, particularly St Neots Camera Club and also those who provided prizes, including the Rotary Club of St Ives.”
