2016 photo competition results

Thank you to everyone that took part in the competition for this new feature for this year. There were some really great shots submitted and lots of money raised for Swanage Lifeboat Week which is what it’s all about.

Sadly the weather hasn’t been on our side this year and with the forecast of strong wind and heavy showers we have decided against presenting prizes at Prince Albert Gardens tonight but instead announce the winners via this release. We would prefer that your pictures and prizes are not water damaged or bent in the wind before you get home!

The winners and runners up are as follows :

Keep an eye on your emails for us contacting you for receiving your prizes. We have also printed off all the entries to the competition and were hoping to have these on display but again, the weather may prevent us from doing that. We will get your photo’s ready for collection from the Lifeboat shop in Swanage if you want yours. If you don’t live locally we’ll get them posted out, just let us know.

Here's Dean's picture we'll publish the others in the coming days.
Thanks again to all who entered.
