Stunning images of the Fens take pride of place at photographer of year award’s night

STUNNING images of the Fens took pride of place when the awards for the photographer of the year competition were handed out.

Octavia View in Wisbech was packed with visitors looking to get the first glimpse of the Fenland Photographer of the Year entries.

Crowds also witnessed the winner being announced at the special ceremony, with Tim Daniels picking up the prestigious title.

His winning photograph will appear in Fenland District Council’s ‘Welcome to the Cambridgeshire Fens’ visitor guide as part of the council’s aims to promote the Fens as a tourism destination.

Karen Harvey, artistic director at Atelier East, which organised the competition alongside the council, said: “It was great to bring so many creative people together in such a beautiful and unique venue as Octavia View, and to share a special evening of celebration and some fantastic photographic art.”
