The winnner of the 2019 Orpington Photography Competition has been announced ahead of the release of the 2020 town calendar.
Congratulations to Stephen Sangster whose photograph of Orpington Library on an autumnal evening (above) was judged to be the winner.
Whether a magic moment at a town centre event, the perfect sunset over a local park, a shot of friends having fun or a favourite wildlife snap from the garden, photographs were judged by a panel looking for photos that capture the best of Orpington, its people and its places.
The panel was impressed by the light and tone of the winning image which is of a recognisable location in the heart of the town centre.
Orpington 1st BID Manager Chris Travers said “We’ve had a brilliant response to this year’s competition with hundreds of entries, and it’s great that Orpingtonians are looking at their surroundings with such positivity. The town calendar never fails to reflect the breadth and vibrancy of Orpington and this will no doubt be the case for 2020 calendar.”
The 2020 calendar will be available from the Orpington library from November.
Below, a couple of shots which caught the panel’s eye and are in the running for a place in the calendar.
