Watford Borough Council’s Elected Mayor Peter Taylor and Managing Director Donna Nolan have chosen the winners of the council’s photography competition, ‘Watford in Extraordinary Times’.
The competition, held as part of the council’s Watford Together initiative, invited residents to submit photographs that capture their experience of this unique time.
There were two categories – one for children aged up to 14 and one for adults. Two winners and eight runners-up have been announced today (Saturday 18 July 2020): The winners are: Millie Lovelock-Halladey, aged 14 and Raluca Nemteanu! And a huge well done to the eight runners-up: Dilan Modha (10), Harry Quinn (9), Mahi Ruparelia (8), Moreen Mero, Lisa O'Brien, Pratiksha Modha, Tricia Staunton and Zoe Tunstall.
First prize for both categories is a Nintendo Switch Lite. Runners-up in the children’s category will each receive an arts and crafts pack and the adults will receive The Spicery’s tantalising How To Be A Curry Legend cookery kit.
Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “We had an incredible response to our photography competition, so thank you to our residents who submitted their entries. We have seen people capture some amazing pictures of their experience over the past few months. These photographs will tell the story of this period in our town’s history to future generations.”
The photography will be used in a special exhibition at Watford Museum and other venues around the town. The winning photographs will also be shared on the council’s social media channels. Find out more at watfordtogether.co.uk.
