Beautiful Barry recently held our first photo competition awards presentation following the competition which ran on our facebook group receiving over 200 entries! Category winners were decided via a public vote.
Congratulations to Jack Hortop winner of the teenage category, who was also announced the overall winner last night. All the entries were incredible and we were shocked by the response. Paul Murphy in the Professional category, Dean Ockerby in the under 13 and Kate Walters in the Amateur category. All winners were presented with a mounted print of their image and a trophy to commemorate the event. We would like to thank Julian for his kind generosity of hosting the evening at Cariad Cafe Bar and donated Prizes.
Thank you to the judges, Rhian Lees of Pride in Barry, Councilor Leighton Rowlands Mayor of the Vale, Barrie Dyer Chairmen of The Round Table, Jane Hutt AM and Cariad Cafe owner Julian.
We had representatives from various groups there to celebrate what we think is a beautiful Town, thank you all for making the event so lovely.
