Following the success of our 2017 calendar of locally taken photographs, we once again asked the public to submit their favourite shots of the town for a 2018 calendar, and the entries were stunning!

The photos were anonymously assessed by an independent judge, Steve Ininns, and 12 finalised chosen. Out of those 12, three were selected to recieve prizes as follows:

1st Prize – Ian Bale (£20 food voucher to spend at Farmer Copleys)
2nd Prize – Dale Heppinstall (Fish and Chip meal for 2 at Knights of Pontefract)
3rd Prize – Mike Wilde (£10 Love2Shop Voucher)

Karl Gilbert, Secretary of Pontefract Civic Society coordinated the competition and he said, “Pontefract and the surrounding area is a beautiful place and we have some very talented photographers who take in pride in the town through their craft. We were really pleased with the quality of entries, which I’m told made judging a hard job!”

Pontefract Civic Society would like to thank Farmer Copleys and Knights of Pontefract for their generous donation of prizes.

The calendar is on sale priced £7 from the civic society by calling 01977 708658, via emailing and online.
