Hamptons in the winter - photo competition winners

Hamptons in the winter - photo competition winners

Winter in the Hamptons proved a massive inspiration for all you photographers out there.

O&H Hampton recently ran another of its popular photography competitions and asked for shots that best depict the Hamptons community in winter. Residents responded with some eye-catching images evoking a season of sombre beauty.

With a field of high quality entries to choose from, judges finally awarded first prize in the over-16 category to Kar Lee of Hampton Vale for his superb panoramic shot, which encapsulates the competition’s theme so beautifully.

And 10-year-old Rhianne McNair, of Hampton Vale, wins the 16 and under category for a thoughtful and atmospheric dog’s eye view of winter. Congratulations to our winners, who each receive an Amazon Fire 7 tablet.

But that’s not the end – O&H Hampton will be publicising many of the other excellent entries to provide more insights into life in the Hamptons. Keep an eye out for them on the O&H Hampton website, Flickr pages, Twitter feed and the Hampton Gazette Facebook page.

O&H Hampton’s Roger Tallowin said: “We really enjoyed the beauty and variety of entries we received for this winter competition. They remind us what a rich natural environment Hamptons residents have on their doorstep, and how they appreciate it.”

Frost on the berries in Robins Wood, shimmering ice on Serpentine Lake or tell-tale paw prints on newly fallen snow, what does life in Hampton in winter mean for you?

Whether you’re an amateur photographer or photography enthusiast, we’re looking for entrants to take some snaps covering different aspects of life in the Hamptons that best depict the community in winter.

This is all about capturing a moment in time that reflects the beauty to be seen in the Hamptons during the coldest of the seasons.

The judges’ favourite shots will be divided into two categories – adult and junior (16s and under) – and we have two terrific Amazon Fire 7 tablets to give away.

How to enter

Entry is completely free and you can submit up to five photos. The competition runs from 1 February – 21 March 2016.

In keeping with the competition theme, your pictures need to be taken within the Hamptons – the Parish Council area – which we’ll stretch to include Crown Lakes Country Park.

If you take any pictures including people (seeing folk wrapped up warm in woolly hats and scarves would obviously lend well to the theme!), please make sure you seek their permission to feature in your shots before sending your photo/s in.

We’re also hoping to use as many of your pictures as possible, with full credit given, to brighten up the photo galleries on our website and Flickr pages as well as the Hampton Gazette Facebook page – so by entering you will be giving us permission to do so.

The usual small print on the competition rules follows here and we look forward to seeing your wintry snaps very soon!
