Photography competition showcases residents' lockdown wildlife adventures

TEN talented photographers have been crowned the winners of a competition celebrating wildlife in and around Houlton.

Calling on budding photographers to share the snaps they captured on their walks during lockdown, the competition aimed to encourage residents to explore the wildlife in their own gardens and surrounding countryside.

From over 70 entries, ten winners were chosen to have their winning shots professionally printed on canvas.

The winners were local residents Bogusalawa Petit, Hannah Millett, Jack Derbisz, Jeremy Smith, Nina Murray, Kyla Williams, Toni Michelle Scammell, Kate-Jane Mack, Zoe Rebecca and Steven Farmer.

And the top 20 photographs will feature in an outdoor photography exhibition at Houlton later this year.

Galina Bardarska from Houlton’s master developers Urban&Civic said: “We were blown away by the stunning shots captured by our talented locals throughout lockdown.

“We were delighted to see so many pick up their cameras and capture the vibrant and diverse wildlife on their daily walks.

“We are dedicated to helping create and preserve natural spaces throughout Houlton, and we’re proud that the development is already home to a wide variety of ecological habitats and mature green spaces.”
