WITH the Lanarkshire Photography Expo 2013 taking place on Sunday, we can now bring you the last six winning pictures which will compete at the event.
The overall winner will be announced at the event, around 2pm on Sunday, at Lanark Agricutural Centre.
Ron Harris and I will also be manning a stall, featuring old pictures, at the event which runs from 10am to 4pm.
So who will be there on the day, hoping that their picture wins the overall spoils?
In the architecture category, Gazette photographer Lindsay Addison, Clydesdale Camera Club’s John Zawadzki and I were in full agreement.
The winners were: New Lanark by Donald Thompson, Chatelherault by Donna Steele and Nutberry Windfarm by Clark Thomson.
And the runners-up were Rooftops by Clark Thomson, Old St Bride’s Church by Clark Thomson and New Lanark buildings by Donald Thompson.
In the events category, the winners were: Formation Floating by Bobby Gavin, Hawksland Cartie by Bobby Gavin and Sheep Shearers by Elizabeth Bell.
And the runners-up were Overton Point to Point by Bobby Gavin, Highland Fling by Donna Steele and Up, Up and Away by Donna Steele.
The winners of the five categories will find out at the Expo on Sunday which three pictures have been deemed the best by the judges.
The top three will receive a mounted and framed picture of their winning image and a six month free subscription to the Carluke or Lanark Gazette.
The overall winning shot will also be featured on the front page of our 2014 calendar which will go on sale to the general public soon.
We won’t be revealing who that is until next week – as we’re keeping the winner a secret until Sunday!
But I can reveal the eleven other local snappers who will feature in our calendar.
They are Kirk Lothian, Carluke; Susan West of Nemphlar; Elizabeth McDonald of Biggar; Donald Thompson of Carstairs; David Spinks of Stockbridge; Elaine McLuckie of Forth; Maria Park of Law; Shian Thomson of Lanark; John Barclay of Crawford; Robin Brown of Lesmahagow; and Lesley Henderson of Lanark.
You will have to buy the calendar to find out which pictures we’ve chosen though!
And don’t forget to go along to the Expo this Sunday from 10am to 4pm – it will be well worth a visit!
