The Tony Bonner Photographic Competition
Entries for the 8th Tony Bonner Photographic Competition are now being accepted.
The competition is open to all residents in Kelvedon and Feering, you do not have to be a member of the Society.The closing date is 31 May 2018. More details can be found on the Rules and Conditions and Entry Form via links below:
Don't forget you can enter up to three images so when you are out and about the two villages with your camera (or phone), think about what would look good in a calender as that might be a very different photograph to that which might win a photographic competition.
The winning entry will appear in the 2019 calender and also on the cover of the Kelvedon News.
The Winners of the 2017 competition were:
1st Listening Bench Primulas - Anne Townley
2nd Waiting for the Sweet Peas - Maureen Browning
3rd Frosty Morning - John Hackworth
These plus other entries were used to create the 2018 calender - see image above - the winning entry also featured on the front cover of the September edition of the Kelvedon News courtesy of Kelvedon Parish Council.
The entries can all be seen on display at Feering & Kelvedon Local History Museum.
Tony Bonner was a local farmer who died in 2006. The Society received a donation from his family and after long discussions it was decided to use his money to hold a competition to encourage interest in where we live, especially amongst our younger members of the two villages. Tony felt very strongly that our two villages should be left as they are, not stopping progress but looking after what we have and ensuring any future development should enhance it. Again this year we held a photographic competition in his memory.
