Winning entries of GAP Photographic Competition

News Date: 06.09.2010

Nearly 400 entries were received for GAP’s photographic competition that celebrated the role that native breeds of livestock play in conserving our natural environment, landscape and cultural history.

The overall standard was very high so the judges had a difficult job but their selections were:

1st prize: Clive Wilton: Highland cattle in woodland, The Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall

2nd prize: Gemma Eales: Black-faced ewe on Cox Tor, Dartmoor, Devon
3rd prize: Peter Roworth: Exmoor pony grazing Skipworth Common National Nature Reserve, Vale of York
Also highly commended were Steve Aylward, Simon Brock, Jessica Byrne-Daniel, Stephen Davis, Mike Downey, Peter Johnstone and Rick Harrison.
The winners will receive cheques to the value of £500, £250 and £100 respectively and all will have a year’s free membership of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST) and have the option of attending a GAP training course, also without charge.
