2017 photo competition results announced

At their Open Meeting on 16th October the Friends of Broomfield Park presented prizes to winners of the 2017 Photo Competition.

The winning photographs were selected by inviting visitors to Broomfield Conservatory to vote for the favourite photos out of a shortlist of twelve entries on display.  Members of the FoBP committee whittled down the 141 entries submitted this year to create the shortlist.

The winning photograph in the Adult category was submitted by Phil Mariutto, who was unfortunately unable to attend the prizegiving.
