Joint winners of Cotswolds Landscape Photographer of the Year

Three photographs have been selected as joint winners of the Cotswolds Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016 competition following a public vote online and at the recent Cotswolds Inspired Art Exhibition.

As part of celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the Cotswolds Conservation Board were looking for the most captivating local landscape images.

The three joint winners are:


Autumn Eye of the Cotswolds by Anthony Paul Inwood from Bourton on the Water
  Broadway Tower, by Andrew Caley from Bourton on the Water Naunton, by Andy Prior from Witney

Over 170 photographs were entered into the completion with 10 selected by judges in December. Judges were: Andrew Grahame (CEO – Farncombe Estate, Dormy House Hotel & Spa, Foxhill Manor, The Fish Hotel); Nick Holliday (Vice Chair, Cotswolds Conservation Board); Sarah Howard (landscape photographer); Nick Turner (photographer/filmmaker) and Nicky Price from BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

The 10 finalist’s photographs then went to the public vote online during December and at the Cotswolds Inspired Art Exhibition at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester throughout January.

Nick Holliday Vice Chair of the Cotswolds Conservation Board and one of the judges said: “It was extremely tough selecting the final 10 photographs from the 170 that were entered into the competition. Many were of a very high standard. Congratulations to the final 10 that made it to the public vote and to our joint winners!”
