On the evening of Thursday the 28th November, Uckfield Town Council Mayor, Cllr Spike Mayhew presented awards to entrants of the annual Photographic Calendar Competition whose photo’s were chosen to be included in the 2020 calendar, themed ‘Uckfield at Work, Rest and Play.
Also at the presentation held in the Council Chamber of the Uckfield Civic Centre were fellow judges of the Competition; local photographer Ron Hill and Judith Stewart; Sussex Photographic Federation Judge. Overall 3rd, 2nd and 1st place winners each won One4all vouchers to the value of £20, £35 and £50 respectively, which were announced during the awards presented. Unfortunately the first place prize winner was unable to attend on the evening.
The Town Council also ran a social media competition for a ‘comedy caption’ for the photograph used for October, submitted from Julie Eiloart, and from this our judges chose the theme for 2021 as ‘Comedy Captions’.
