Felixstowe Photo Competition 2020 – and the winner is…

Posted by Town Hall Staff 20 May 2020

The seaside town of Felixstowe in Suffolk is a unique, exciting and diverse location for photographic opportunities – seaside fun, beautiful gardens, huge container ships, historic buildings and rich wildlife habitats.

This year’s Felixstowe Photo Competition, which is organised and supported by Visit Felixstowe, Felixstowe Town Council and the Landguard Partnership, attracted around 70 entries from all ages (12 to 81 years) and abilities over three different themes – Active, Historic and Seasons.

Following an online public vote, the top 12 photos were selected (four from each theme). A panel of judges, including the Mayor of Felixstowe then selected the overall “Judge’s Choice” Winner.

So, we are pleased to announce the winner of the Felixstowe Photo Competition 2020 is Michael Ralph from Felixstowe with his dramatic shot of Martello Tower ‘T’. Michael’s photo was entered into the ‘Historic’ theme.

Councillor Nick Barber, Mayor of Felixstowe said: “Once again this year’s entries have been outstanding and really show the rich variety of landmarks and attractions of our seaside town. Congratulations to Michael, and we would also like to thank everyone else who took the time to enter this year’s competition”.

Watch out for details of the 2021 competition later in the year.
