We Love the Coast 2017 Photo Contest Winners

7th February 2017Alverton Gallery

We are very pleased to announce the top ten list for our We Love the Coast 2017 Photographic Competition. Entries, both amateur and professional, came in from Cornwall and the rest of the UK as well many other countries: the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Sweden, Italy, Portugal, Spain and India. Our judges thoroughly considered each and every entry – and there were many– before the challenge of whittling these down to a list of only ten. The judges were impressed by the quality, originality and artistry of the entries and it was particularly difficult to decide which excellent entries would narrowly miss out on a top ten spot. However all selections have now been made and we now take this opportunity to congratulate our winners as follows:
